dir HTML Attribute

The "dir" attribute in HTML is used to define the text direction for the content within an element. It can be used to indicate whether the text is written in a left-to-right (ltr) or right-to-left (rtl) direction.

For example, in the following code snippet, the dir attribute is set to "rtl" for a paragraph element:


<p dir="rtl">شخصیت های خیالی</p>

The value of the attribute can be either "ltr" or "rtl". If not specified, the default value is "ltr".

The dir attribute can be used on most HTML elements and it's useful for languages that are written in right-to-left direction like Arabic, Hebrew, or Persian. It can also be used to change the direction of a specific word or phrase within a sentence.

It's important to note that the attribute doesn't change the font or the writing system, it only changes the text direction and the position of the punctuation marks.
