Dear Wolfgang

First of all, let me thank you very much for your informative answer.

It is a module for Persian typesetting in ConTeXt. Please see:

I am a novice in LuaTeX and ConTeXt and to learn these I tried to
modify FontSampler code (http://wiki.luatex.org/index.php/Fontsampler)
to get a sample of Persian fonts in a directory hierarchy too.

BTW, at the moment my problem with LuaTeX is that the page numbering
is in english. Do you know how to change the page numbering to Persian
in LuaTeX?
