See, for example,


This is the most popular Persian text encoding. The information in that
file is not complete, but you should be able to sort out all the details
from that file, knowing that it's a completely visual character set
(there's no bidi, and the stream can be displayed on a non bidi-aware
terminal with just a font change).

Here is a list (I'm dropping characters that are in ASCII or ISO-8859-6):

Joining controls: U+200C, U+200D
Bidi controls: U+200E, U+200F, U+202A, U+202B, U+202C, U+202D, U+202E
Punctuations: U+00AB, U+00D7, U+00F7, U+00BB, U+066B, U+066C, U+066A, 
Digits: U+06F0..U+06F9
Letters: U+0671, U+067E, U+0686, U+0698, U+06A9, U+06AF, U+06CC
Marks: U+0654, U+0670

I hope that's all (you should also test things like U+FEFF of course).
