What the issue is

Content in languages that are read right-to-left (RTL), such as Arabic and Hebrew, or those that may use vertical text directions, requires HTML elements to correctly manage text directionality. This includes using the dir attribute appropriately on elements or through CSS to ensure text is correctly aligned and read in its intended direction. Failure to do so can result in text that is difficult to read, comprehend, or interact with effectively.
