Html Attributes 2

Hello guys,good morning..Its realy been a while i posted any thing here.In my last tutorial i talked about HTML attributes and the core attributes,in this tutorial am gonna round up with HTML attributes.

Internationalization Attributes

There  are three internationalization attribute, which are available for most (although not all) XHTML elements.


The dir Attribute

The dir attribute allows you to indicate to the browser about the direction in which the text should flow in the HTML page.The dir attribute can take one or two values,as you can see below:

Value                                                         Meanng

ltr                                   Left  to right (the default direction)

rtl                                   Right to left (for languages like Hebrew or 
                                      Arabic that are read right to left)

<DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="rtl">
<title>Direction Display</title>
This is how HTML displays text direction

you can try the above code out using your text editor for better understanding.

The lang Attribute 
The  lang attribute allows you to indicate the main language used in a HTML document, but this attribute was kept in HTML only for backwards compatibility with earlier versions of HTML.The attribute has been replaced by the xml:lang attribute in new HTML documents.
The values of the lang attribute are ISO-639 standard two-character language codes.

<DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<title>English Language Page</title>
This HTML page is using English Language

You can also try that out using your text editor and feel free to ask questions

The xml:lang Attribute 
 The xml:lang attribute is the XHTML replacement for the lang attribute.The value of the xml:lang attribute should be an ISO-639 country code as mentioned in the previous section.
