Behdad, Nadim, yes these are Urdu characters and I too doesn't benefit at all 
from their inclusion since I don't know Urdu, but the point is Arabic and 
Farsi installation support can't be included in Mandrake and may be others 
easily if there is no unique font that contains Arabic/Farsi/Urdu glyphs 
especially the ones mentioned by Pablo of MandrakeLinux.com, Please tell you 
non-team ;) to consider these 7 characters. At least, explain this viewpoint 
to them.
