Help: Pashto CodePage for Arabic Win3x Win95

I know that there is a way to create a Pashto code page, and I suspect
someone has done it. Likewise for other languages using Arabic Extended
Characters. I have seen Urdu products, for example. Can anyone help with
this problem? Is Pashto supported in any Unicode development tools?

Pashto is a major language of Afghanistan, and is important in several
nearby countries, especially Pakistan.
