This seems (I think, although I'm not sure where the letter boundaries
are) to work correctly for me in Mozilla, Opera, and Konqueror, but
that's probably because my windowing system (GNOME 2.6 on Fedora Core 2)
handles bidirectional text and Arabic shaping.

It seems like this should really be described as a test of the windowing
system rather than a test of the browser.
