#7848 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Themes should be able to detect directionality of layout

It would be a great idea if themes could detect the directionality of the layout based on content language. This way, a theme could check if the blog is in an RTL langauge (Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, etc); if it is, other CSS and image files could be loaded.

Won't <?php bloginfo('text_direction'); ?> work?

My bad! Actually, this is not only available, but also in use. In theme.php (HEAD version) we have:

elseif ( !empty($wp_locale->text_direction) && file_exists("$dir/{$wp_locale->text_direction}.css") )
