'Unicode standard for joining-script shaping' does fairly accurately 
describe the ArabicShaping.txt document — yes, characters not included 
in that document may have Joining_Type property, but that document 
specifically deals with joining-scripts —, but I still maintain that the 
better thing would be to refer to the name of the document, rather than 
trying to describe it.

Getting Spiekermann to not like Helvetica is like training
a cat to stay out of water. But I'm impressed that people
know who to ask when they want to ask someone to not like
Helvetica. That's progress. -- David Berlow
