  • Re: Mapping a Unicode range to another

    Thanks a lot, John.

    I read up on 'init', 'medi' and 'fina' tags and ArabicShaping.txt's definition of which characters have Dual_Joining (hence 'medi' is applied) etc.

    But I am having the same thoughts as Michel's: doesn't Opentype support some kind of pre-transform function of Unicode points? 

    This all happens inside one font: after they leave the text processing application, the sequence of Hebrew Unicode points would be pre-transformed into Syriac, and this sequence of Syriac Unicode points would then be treated as the normal input to the font.
