The last use of $this in the Joomla 2.5 Beez2 template that will review is $this->direction. We can see it being used in the following section of code in the template's PHP file:

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="<?php echo $this->language; ?>" lang="<?php echo $this->language; ?>" dir="<?php echo $this->direction; ?>" >

When we look at the result of the following code in our Joomla 2.5 site's HTML, it looks like the following:

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="es-es" lang="es-es" dir="ltr" >

As you can see, $this->direction specifies the direction of text in the template. In our example, the value is ltr, left to right.
