Primary Category: CSSIn Part Seven of this series we'll take a look at a basic facet of inline elements, specifically the 'direction' in which the text and other inline content is displayed. You may think this is an easy property to understand, but in fact, it is possible to order text characters in more than one way, and exactly such interesting things do happen in our world.

Join us as we explore the complications of 'writing direction' and ways to control those directions when needed. Your boss won't fire you if you don't know this information (we hope!), but some day such knowledge may give you what you need to perform a difficult job. Besides, it's rather interesting stuff!
