    Those of you interested in Arabic might find the RefCard at useful, or at least decorative
    if you have a color printer. All the letterforms, 9 different
    encodings, keyboard mappings, glpyh selection rules, etc. all jammed
    into one letter-sized sheet.

    Caveat: A rather strange thing happened when I tried to print it 11 by
    17 to the office Ricoh color printer. First, the Arabic font I had used
    didn't print, even though it printed just fine to a letter-sized page in
     black and white. So I changed the font to Arial Unicode MS. But
    there's also a greek gamma and a chi in there in Times New Roman, both
    of which print as the glyph for \u00F0, small letter eth. Anybody have
    any idea why?

    (Also looking for help getting the IPA right.)
