many scripts. If you need different rules from what we have, or if you
need to make modifications, then you can supply your own rules to the ICU
functions. If you do have better rules, please let us know :-)
For occasional use, you can try the online demo for this functionality:
This also has links with an overview etc.
(Try selecting "Arabic" for Source1 and "Latin" for Target1, then type or
paste some Arabic text into the Input field.)
