>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, Plugin Dialogs
>    Affects Versions: Master

> Since API 19, Andorid has had the facilities to deal with bidirectional text, however,

the following dialogs:
>     navigator.notification.confirm("Pure English !!!", function(){}, "7"); 
>     navigator.notification.confirm("עברית היא שפה מדוברת בIsrael !",
function(){}, "8");
> Since we are in Hebrew, the base text direction will be RTL. This means that when we
see the second notification with the Hebrew text, it will be right-justified. When we click
and see the "Pure English !!!" notication, because locale is RTL, we should expect to see:
"!!! Pure English" and it should be right-justified, however, we still see "Pure English !!!",
left justified.
> Ideally you should be able to just add   android:supportsRtl="true" to the manifest,
however, this is doesn't seem to ne enough without setting the text direction to the locale
for all of the dialogs.
