YAML5: Use HTML 'dir' attribute in CSS files #23
Next Drupal 8 (release end of year 2013) has a changed approach for integrating RTL support. See below linked case for reasons and the final committed patch in #69 that has tons of example how code need to be changed.
Remove language_css_alter() (RTL stylesheets) in favor of HTML 'dir' attribute: https://drupal.org/node/2015789
Some of the key benefits are
For the reason that the incremental files (-rtl.css) are no longer working in Drupal 8 we really need to change this. I like this change as it makes code really easier to read as the RTL comes directly after the LTR specification. No need to search around if the RTL override exists or not and so on. It's really a lot easier.
Its great to see, that those separate files are no longer needed. I have to check where and if YAML itelf still needs much RTL related code as with YAML5 most old-IE related issues are gone and provided styling has been further reduced for prototyping. So in most cases RTL relevant styling will occur on user-basis now.
