The Unicode standard requires that "transparent characters"
such as Arabic vowel signs do not affect the joining of
Arabic letters and the formation of ligatures.
However, the practice seems to be quite different.
I notice that in Windows 2003/XP only the typefaces
Microsoft Sans Serif and Times New Roman show the
lam-alif ligature with transparent characters:
The other typefaces show the joining of lam and alif
but no ligature.
What is the general situation? In Windows Vista?
In other operating systems? With other typefaces?
Should we omit any mark between lam and alif
for the time being?
