If you set the
dir="auto" attribute on block-level elements, browsers will detect the proper text direction based on what unicode characters are inside the element.
This is useful when writing bi-directional content, for example a blog post with a mix of latin and arabic
To avoid writing
<p dir="auto"> all over my content files, I decided to make a simple field method to insert the attribute after calling
markdown() on an element.
