    It is indeed annoying that Uniscribe does not allow me to change the color of a (or a couple of) letter(s), or raising a it a tiny bit
    without breaking the Arabic shaping. If I want to take a letter of
    a different font within a word: not possible -- of course it would be
    my responsiblity to take a suitable one, and if I could push the
    "strange" letter a little bit up or down, if would be easy.
