Dear Peter,

Thanks for your insight: I'll write a bug report for Mail.app 3.1  
running under Leopard.
But can anyone explain why the Arabic or Persian characters used by  
Loeghman are dislocated (that is without the ligatures which make the  
characters change shape when necessary)?
I don't experience this with XeTeX or XeConteXt running on MacOS X.

Best regards: OK
PS: regarding your quote on Windows and beaujolais, you are right on  
both… :-)
