    That then must be why U + 0672 is not mapped? (My mistake in the Jan 8 email; I don't know Kashmiri. Thanks for taking the trouble to straighten me out.)

    > +065F is essential; it modifies U+0655 and may be used under any letter, in any (ini, medi, fina) position, like U+0655. U+0673 has it only under U+0672 which is

    This definitely needs to be taken up with Unicode. I have IE8 and cannot even see U + 0620 displayed so can't help here but I would not like a truncated shape in final or isolated position for the Arabic yaa. I presume the kashmiri yaa would be like the Arabic, but I cannot see the shape you are talking about.
    (Another note: I presume your message did not post to the list because you omitted the subject heading; I inserted the subject heading from Jan. 8; hope this fixes it.)
