Added to the estimation list... :))

Nice. But wouldn't work for "Arabo-Romance"... Except /b/ and /v/
merging in one phoneme with two allophonic realisations [b] and [B]
like in Spanish? Not sure. I'd better kill it, and the deal is over

Oh I have it in Courier New, Tahoma and Microsoft Sans Serif, but not Arial or Times New Roman (it shows up as a blank box). I also have it in Arabic Transparent, Simplified Arabic, Traditional Arabic and Andalus. And of course Arial Unicode MS, which is a huge font (21 Mb).
You are right. I was just not very attentive. Courier New, Tahoma, Microsoft Sans Serif and Arial Unicode MS can display the [veh]. <<<Sadly, I'm having trouble finding them! I can't remember the proper extension (I don't think it's .kbd), but I'll keep looking.>>> You needn't even try unless it's .kbd - It won't work. But I've found Keyman6.0, Persian keyboard is available for it. I'm happy / Estoy felic. ~Danny~ Yitzik ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
