There is currently uncertainty over the correct encoding of the Uighur h. Although U+06BE
is the obvious choice based on its shaping, at least some Uighur text seems to use the
Arabic heh U+0647, which requires dedicated Uighur fonts or OT language system tag support.
The Chinese draft standard for Uighur specifies U+06BE, which seems to me a sensible choice.
Note that the preferred Uighur glyph shapes may vary slightly from those used for U+06BE
in e.g. Urdu, but the differences are minimal.
