I don't know such things on Mac OS.

In MS Windows, the default "Farsi" keyboard has correct "FARSI YEH", and 
also other replacment o experimental ones.  But old Microsoft's Fonts have 
problems with "FARSI YEH", that it's going to be corrected in new 

In RedHat Linux, the keyboard and fonts, and other 3th party's fonts like 
Gnome are all correct in this field.

You can use Microsoft Office 2003 and it's updated fonts to see this as 
you like! ;)
