"(=Translations= fix really bad urdu characters)"

What was bad about the characters? Just the hamza above the aleph? — Hippietrail 12:41, 27 Apr 2004 (UTC)

No, the fact that they were spelled in characters from the Arabic Presentation Forms block of Unicode and not from the Arabic block. This is kind of like spelling ruffian with the ffi ligature character instead of ruffian in ordinary characters. Ideally the wiki would be smart enough to see these transparently but if it can't even uppercase characters outside of a-z consconsistently we really shouldn't encourage stuff like this. —Muke Tever 18:19, 27 Apr 2004 (UTC)
OK I'll have a look at it. I love Arabic script (: — Hippietrail 00:45, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)
