This strongly depends on the intended use.

BDI (meant to isolate a text fragment from its surroundings) doesn't make much
sense here, since it applies to the entire paragraph content. In order to
isolate *some part(s) of the content* in a text input (which does not accept
inline markup), we may use the Unicode control characters RLI, LRI, FSI, PDI.

This sets base direction of the text to "auto", i.e. according to the first
strong character.
