Thank you. The unicode text looked good (although reversed left-to-right as
I sent it) in my sent mail, and it looked perfect (corrected right-to-left)
in your response.  But it did not look good in the digest email (all the
letters were convered to ?'s).

Also it's typesetting fine in ConTeXt except for the vowel placement.  Any
suggestions there?  Thank you again.
