When a user dials a number, they will observe that the input follows LTR standards as by design. However, when a user inputs too many numbers, the overflow ellipsis that shows will display on the righthand side, cutting off visibility of any further input by the user. The formatting of the ellipsis should cut off any previously done input as opposed to any future input so a user can ensure they typed the input they intended.

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame to 20150219010228
2) Open 'Dialer' app.
3) Begin input.
4) Type 18 numbers to fill space (may vary depending on numbers input).
5) Type additional numbers.

Ellipsis formatting follows RTL standards with LTR input (design): cuts off visibility of right hand character input.

Ellipsis formatting follows LTR standards with LTR input: cuts off visbility of left hand character input.

triage: nominating as P2
I have done some research and there seem to be phone numbers such as in Finland that, if you add the international code, can reach up to 20 digits (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_international_call_prefixes : Finland can have up to 5-digit international access codes). So this is an issue for those cases, and not seeing what numbers you are entering is an issue. However I think this can still be a case on the rarer side, which is why I edged towards a P2, instead of a P1

I think a dialer peer should review this if possible. Doug - could you take a look if you have a minute? Thanks!

Oh sorry for the failing test. Now corrected.

For this change, I carefully checked that it affects only numbers, but don't hesitate to tell me if I forgot something and if this change is not enough specific. Thanks!

This issue is verified fixed on latest b2g inbound build. In RTL, Dialer now follows LTR format and puts ellipsis on the left so newest numbers being inputted can be seen.

Not adding verifyme keyword for 2.2 since there's not a decision on uplifting to 2.2.
