Hi list,

is it possible to use a single font for multiple scripts with fontspec 
without doing any font switching or altering font features?

The below sample code fails (it renders, but either bengali, latin or 
arabic is not rendered correctly):

যুক্তব্যঞ্জন the 1. item العربية

Any help would be appreciated. The fontspec manual and a web search 
weren't helpful so far.

On a side note: With the latest fontspec version (2.0c) the arabic 
script is used in the above example. When using fontspec 1.18 from 
texlive 2009 bengali is used.
