What you have seen in FarsiTeX is the standard mathematics in Persian. In
Persian mathematics is the same as LTR mathematics, not a single difference
but we only have persian numbers instead latin ones. The equation numbers
also should be unchanged in Persian. You can also look at xepersian outputs
for more clue.
