Arabic shaping vs character encoding

Congratulations to the expositions. I have never seen a better exposition 
of the principles behind Arabic rendering vs. storing of texts as such as
pure information. It is not special to Arabic; the same problems and
distinctions appear in many writing systems; they only show up most
prominently in Arabic, and once solved there satisfactorily, will serve
for many more writing systems.
