An area is just a way, where the endpoint connects to the starting 
point. In the iD editor, if you select a way and look closely, you 
should see that the middle of each line segment has a small triangle 
that indicates the direction of the way. Since the right side of the way 
is the low side, an embankment that encircles a mound should be drawn 
counter-clockwise. If you need to reverse the direction of an existing 
way in iD, just select it and press V. In JOSM press R.
