Not sure if this is the best approach:

Despite what MS Typography says, I think it's important to maintain the  
joiner info after analysis. If I select text from a pdf, the joiner info  
should be there. This is important for, eg, switching from Arabic-language  
to Farsi-language typography. So If I select some pdf text formatted  
according to Farsi rules, I should be able to save that text with the  
rules included.

Can this be made an option, so fonts that contain zwj zwnj are not  

Best wishes
