i really didn't understand what you mean by the "visual character set"
but when converting from IRAN SYSTEM to unicode
for example when i find the "0x90"  shall i convert it to "<ZWNJ>+0x0627"
is that correct ?
and when converting from unicode to replace "<ZWNJ>+0x0627" with "0x90" ?

all the bidi, joining, digits stuff are already there, just modified the range to include 2 characters i missed them.
