dir attribute

By Opera Software

From Opera 15 onward, Opera 11 & 12’s extension format is no longer supported, and instead, we’ve switched to Chromium’s extension model. Check out our new documentation for developing extensions for Opera 15 and higher and start building your own extensions.


The dir attribute defines the direction of the language used by an element with the following values:

  • "ltr" value stands for Left-To-Right text
  • "rtl" value stands for Right-To-Left text
  • "lro" value stands for Left-To-Right Override text
  • "rlo" value stands for Right-To-Left Override text


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" id="http://example.com/myExtension" version="1.0">
  <span dir="rtl">
    Text meant to be read from right to left can go here.
