    Sorry, I find your message still confusing and I still wonder
    what you actually want.

    I have a few remarks for you:

    1) You should not use any letters from the "Presentation Forms"
       at all. They are just for compatibility with older charsets.

    2) Programs (including webbrowsers) are not perfect in displaying
       right-to-left text. You are better off when you specify text
       direction explicitly. In HTML, you should always write
       <... dir=rtl> or <... dir=ltr> See

    3) The sequence U+0629 U+064B does exist at the end of a word.
       The sequence U+0629 U+064B U+0627 does *not* exist in Arabic.
