I've corrected the charset table using [1].

Still needs exansion in text, references, and the charset tables should at some point be programmatically generated to eliminate the possibility of typos.

Coverage[edit]

Might explain that it fails to cover the needs of any language other than Arabic itself -- it's conspicuously lacking characters used in Persian, Urdu, Pashto, etc. AnonMoos (talk) 09:19, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Was it possibly designed only for Arabic, not for "scripts using the Arabic Alphabet"?Spitzak (talk) 00:20, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm sure that was the case, but practical code pages by computer manufacturers generally included at least the main Persian and Urdu characters, and it seems a little odd that there are so many undefined gaps in the standard which could have been used for such characters...
