Thanks Richard. I have added this to our agenda for Thursday (along with a review of the I18N/CSS call if needed)

Subject: Glossary definitions for ijam and tashkil


I have created new definitions for ijam and tashkil at

I'm hoping that the definition text is generally clearer, but i also changed the examples, since a hamza (in the old example) isn't really a tashkil, and that example had some other problems.

Fwiw, i adapted the definitions from which i'm still working on, and removed the text in the Arabic orthography notes page that you previously pointed to.

If the new definitions look ok, next step will be to replace the definitions in the i18n WG glossary at
