In the dir attribute spec[1], textarea and input(with type attribute is in the
Text, Search, Telephone, URL, or E-mail state) elements have the same behavior:

"If the element's value contains a character of bidirectional character type AL
or R, and there is no character of bidirectional character type L anywhere
before it in the element's value, then the directionality of the element is
'rtl'. [BIDI]"

However differently from textarea, input element does not have any css rule for
bidirectional text[2]. The textarea rule is:

textarea[dir=auto i]{ unicode-bidi: plaintext; }
