 Could you elaborate on Farsi Yeh issue?
 From what I see, there is no Farsi keyboard layout (on PC or Mac) that uses
 the real Farsi Yeh (U+06CC) they use either U+0649 the Arabic Alef Maksurah
 (for Mac and some PCs) or U+064A the Arabic Yeh (for some other PCs, with
 chopped off dots in the Arabic glyph in the font!)
 To my knowledge, most Farsi fonts don't have real Farsi Yeh. Some do, but
 it's actually not being used by current Farsi keyboards on either platforms.

Hello,

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 
versions.

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! ;)

Windows 2000 and Windows XP both use U+06CC in their 'Farsi' keyboard
layouts. I don't know about current versions of Mac OS (which has a
keyboard named 'Persian'), but Panther (Mac OS 10.3) will include a
Persian keyboard layout based on ISIRI 2901:1994.

You're somehow right. But this is something that is being fixed
everywhere, although not quickly.
