Which means actually left hand rule if I have understood the right hand/left
hand rules correctly. If you walk along the polygon rings the name of the
rule is telling where the interior of the polygon is. If you follow the
outer ring that is winding counterclockwise the interior in on your left
hand side.

I may be wrong. And the rule does not explicitly say anything about people
walking backwards.
