Some of your problems may be due to the limitations of the OpenType
shaping engines found in Winsows XP (Uniscribe / usp10.dll) and Linux
(Pango). The way these are currently implemented makes combining glyphs from
different scripts difficult. This is not so much a limitation of
Unicode or of OpenType but a limitation of the particular software
used on those platforms to process the OpenType instructions in fonts.
