Description Evan Stade 2010-12-22 14:54:51 PST
The following snippet will give a search input where the text is input RTL:

<input type=search results=5 style="direction: rtl;">

however, the icons still show in the LTR locations, ie., the search glass is on the left and the x is on the right. They should be swapped (also the search glass should be horizontally mirrored).

On OS X the native search field always has the magnifier icon on the left, regardless of the control directionality. 

Mitz/Dave: Does the Mac port wish to preserve the OS native behavior or are you ok having the icons flipped for rtl on for the Apple ports?

Please don’t change this in Mac OS X.

So what's the status of this bug?  Is it WontFix or simply not applicable on Mac?  We hit this issue again today here - http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=162744

I suspect we don't want to diverge behavior from Mac on Mac.  So this is just a fix for other ports then.  There are numerous platform-specific form-control/editing behaviors, I guess this is just another one.

Sounds like this should get moved to crbug.

Chromium bug is crbug.com/67848, I'm leaving this bug open in case ports other than the Mac port wish to modify the behavior.
