The demonstration program used Cyberbas.ttf to render Arabic.  I
checked the font and found that TAH lacks the 'medi(al)' feature.  So
it must be a bug of the font, not of our algorithm.  :-)

I installed the Riwaj.ttf font for the demonstration program.  Now you
can see the TAH letter rendered correctly.

No, I do not understand the Arabic language.  I can recognise and
identify the characters and their presentation forms, but that is all.

... Well, actually I know a few Arabic words.  And I keep listening an
Arabic course on the radio.  (Believe it or not, there is a radio
Arabic course here in Japan.)
