Subject Re: Disconnected arabic characters
Date Fri, 22 Dec 2017 19:26:53 GMT
Interesting.  It seems like this is similar to an English text presentation
layer replacing certain letter sequences with ligatures (e.g. "fi" and
"fl").  It does not change the meaning of the text, but is to improve the
visual appearance (per script-specific typographic conventions).

Thanks for sharing...
