>>Subject: Towards a unified character set for Arabic
>>To deal with the age-old problem of having multiple character sets for
>>representing Arabic electronically, I have written a report on the
>>problem and the recommended solutions. The report was commissioned by
>>KACST, which is the main Science and Technology body in Saudi Arabia (a
>>role comparable to NSF in USA).
>>The report is in Arabic and is written using (off course :-) MS-Word 97.
>>I am soliciting comments about the report. If anyone is interested in
>>receiving an electronic copy of the report please send me e-mail. I can
>>send out any of two versions:
>>MS-Word 97 (about 300 KB)
>>Zipped PostScript (about 800 KB)
>>Please indicate your preference with your request.
>>We have sent copies to the main developers and user groups who are
>>involved with Arabic products.
>>Badr Al-Badr, Ph.D.
