    Does the Unicode standard only deal with plain text or
    does it also deal with text in markup languages like SGML/HTML?

    I wonder whether Arabic letters should join when they are
    separated by markup. Here's an example:

    Current programs display the letters separated by markup
    differently: Internet Explorer 6 and StarOffice 7 join the
    letters, but Mozilla 1.7 does not.

    Is it left to the rules of SGML/HTML to decide or
    has the Unicode standard any opinion about this?
