RTL doesn't play nice with high values of text-indent. This technique is often used as an image replacement method to move text off screen. Paul Irish suggested that we should check for explicitly setting the text-direction to LTR on the particular element.


Hi there,
this line works if I check it on, but not if I check it locally with the latest repo version (0.5.0)
.ir { display: block; text-indent: -999em; overflow: hidden; background-repeat: no-repeat; text-align: left; direction: ltr }

Any ideas? :)


I'll file a bug.
