Uighur question

I'm working on Uighur editing support and had some questions for you
Arabic script experts out there:

 1. Does Uighur use the Indic digits (used in Arabic today), Arabic
    digits (0-9), or both?

 2. If the Indic digits are used, does Uighur use alternate digit shapes
    like Farsi and Urdu?

 3. Is there a freely available font that is designed specifically for
    Uighur (I'm sure there are some commercial ones)?

 4. Can anyone suggest a good keyboard layout for Uighur? I've created
    a simple phonetic layout, but wanted more options.
