Steps to reproduce
When using text-overflow:ellipsis with direction:rtl text, the ellipsis is correctly placed on the left side of the text, but the truncation is still done on the right side of the text.
See https://codepen.io/PazerOP/pen/XgmMJm for a minimal example. The behavior is correct on Chrome and Firefox.
