HTML <bdo> Tag Attributes

HTML <bdo> element has only one attribute, and that is `dir`. This attribute can take one of two values:

  • rtl: which stands for Right to Left and, if used as the value of the dir attribute, it will change the direction of the text content to start from right and move to left.
  • ltr: which stands for Left to Right and, if used as the value of the dir attribute, it will change the direction of the text content to start from left and move toward right.
