btw, the picker has a couple of additional functions that may prove 
handy when editing the alreq doc.

if you want to mention an arabic letter with its Unicode name and code
 point in the text, highlight the letter in the picker (or make it the
 sole character in the box) and click on `charLink`.  This will 
produce markup such as the following:

<a href="/scripts/arabic/block#char06A7"><span class="uname">U+06A7 
ARABIC LETTER QAF WITH DOT ABOVE</span> (<span lang="ar" 

actually you can do this for multiple code points at the same time, if
 you want.

alternatively, if you want to produce an example for the text, input 
or highlight the relevant text and click on `makeEg`.  See the picker 
notes for how to produce examples marked up for the arabic text, plus 
zero or more of the following: a latin transcription, an IPA 
transcription, and the meaning.  For example:

    العربي/alʕarabiː/alarabī/Arabic  (actually the arabic will appear 
to the right as you type or paste this into the input box)

will produce 

<span class="ex" lang="ar" dir="rtl">العربي</span> <span 
class="ipa">alʕarabiː</span> <span class="trans">alʻarabī</span> <span

in either of the above cases, just triple click on the output and copy
 then paste into the source.
