Hans and other contexers,

Again on Arabtex, a real challenge.

2.  The problem with the questionmark remains unsolved, I am afraid.

3. There is also a problem with \rq (closing quotation marks). The 
result is expected to be <<abc>>, however it is <<abc'  

When combined with ", needed to put a sukun, \rq is reinterpreted as 
hamza, e.g. \lq hwlndI"\rq 
Somewhere down in the Arabtex code \rq is mapped to ', which is the 
symbol used for hamza.

I would appreciate if you would look into that.
