UTR 53 Unicode Arabic Mark Ordering Algorithm


      [14] http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr53/





    I'm beginning to suspect that the algorithm described is
    intended to just indicate how characters should be temporarily
    reordered prior to rendering, rather than describe the order in
    which code points should be stored. Since most fonts generally
    produce the behaviour described anyway, it would therefore
    amount to documenting expectations in terms of font behaviour,
    rather than specifying a new form of normalisation.

    It's not at all clear from the document whether that is the
    case, however, so i think that has to be our first question,
    and perhaps we need to await an answer to that before sending
    in many of the other comments.


    JcK: I believe i concur
    ... it may describe new problems wrt confusables
    ... may be worth saying that if we correctly understood this,
    the document needs to be updated to make it clear
