---In general, it seems like a <bdi> element is the way to go.

I believe that phone numbers are often embedded in text that is a mixture of
English for example plus an rtl language (I need to verify this with someone
whose primary language is rtl however) . . . so I am not sure about lang="" in
these cases; if these are just numbers then lang=zxx would be right.
