WorldText seemed to read bytes, not characters. If I paste it's 
alright, but there's no reordering of "two-part dependent vowel signs" 
(U+0D4A to 0D4C); the rest looks fine. What is weird is that characters 
U+0D46 to 0D48 (which behave like Nagari  ि  ) are reordered.

I think such signs occur in South-Asian scripts. Maybe Maurice could 
tell us if he had the same problem with other text editors than iWork.

Kind regards,
