Hi Richard,

I tested  LamAlif letter (Lam+Alif) as a "first letter" with mozilla 1.7 
(http://www.w3c.org.ma/Tests/InitLigature.html). Only the very first 
letter LAM is styled. I was expecting that (nomally) LamAlif as a 
ligature would be considered as first letter.

I am not expert in writing/printing systems. I'll ask some experts 
around here to know more about that.
