Talk:Arabic script in Unicode

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


It's a good thing this article exist, but currently the information is of the kind that exists at, that could be consulted instead. It would be better if the article delves into inherent complications of Unicode and fonts: how one might convert a string of Arabic-block character to a similar of Arabic-Presentation-Forms A/B strings that visually adhers to some real writing style, the problem of Ḥarakāt over Iʿjām and Šadda and so on. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 12:12, 29 April 2009 (UTC)


In a work I'm doing I need to check arabic strings for correct byte order, and I ended up using this table to get the codes of the various versions of the arabic characters. I copied the table in the article and 'cleaned' and reduced the codes to Python unicode strings using an ODF format spreadsheet. Do you think that this file can be a useful addition to the article?

I added a link to ArabUnic: a (free) Java converter that produces unicode from arabic glyphs and the revert. It cares for ligatures. I beleive it can be usefull to the reader of this specific article. I hope that fits with the WP. Appy3 (talk) 18:20, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
