Re: CUPS testing - With harakat!!!

good news, the reference file ar_utf8 is sometimes showing harakaat in the 
right place though not always by any means. However, there are some problems, 
amongst other things sometimes the alif of hamzat alwaSl is missing. I'll 
email you the .ps file it's generated.

Also, and this may be a problem in the reference file, hamzat ulwaSl in 
alfaatiHa is showing as hamzat ulqaT` maftooHa in alHamd and hamzat ulqaT` 
maksoora in ihdinaa .

The file from aljazeera worked to an extent but then caused a segmentation 
fault. It may be as a consequence of me removing the part of the patch you 
suggested be removed.
