Subject: Re: Arabic waslah
Indeed ARABIC SIGN SALLALLAHOU ALAYHE WASSALLAM and WaSla are "small head of Sad above".
I find it unfortunate that U+060E to U+0614 are defined by their function whereas U+06D6 to U+06E8 are defined by their shape.
Can anyone explain the philosophy behind the different approaches?
I agree, specially most of Koranic annotations (or Koranic stop signs) have Arabic names.
Another thing related to the same code range:from U+06D6 to U+06DB are not annotations but they are called "Koranic stop signs".
The following text are my translation of their functions
U+06D6 : Stop sign optional prefered not to stop
U+06D7: Stop sign optional prefered to stop
U+06D8 : Stop sign mandatory
U+06D9 : Stop sign prohibited
U+06DA : Stop sign optional
U+06DB : Stop sign alternate
