First of all, do you have a free program to generate keyboard layouts like
the one you have put on your web page?

Really? I checked a research paper I found in an old magazine dated 1994,
and I found 21 keyboard layouts. Some vendor-specific, some academic,
etc. None of them were phonetic-based. I know phonetic-based Persian
keyboards, but they are usually used by Iranians who live outside Iran.
Also few academicians who are easier with a Latin keyboard.

Locally? May I ask where do use them? At that ".edu"?

Also, I want to mention again that be very careful about that shift-space
I told you which should produce ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER. It is very
important, and many users use it. The format of the table should be
changed in a way it may have shift-space as a normal entry. So, careless
people will mention it even if only use the tables.

There is no Unicode page there. You should receive a directory listing
only. Don't you receive it?
