Attached are the first 23 references from
(the Arabic wikipedia article on Istanbul), as generated by my XeLaTeX
Things to notice:
1) Unicode BiDi algorithm at work in web version in places like
citation , "Statistics of the 2010 Turkey census". XeLaTeX renders
2) Broken italic for arabic in GNU freefont in citation .
(straightforward to fix)
3) Arabic comma instead of English comma in citation . (in both
web and XeLaTeX output)
Item #1 is the one I'd really appreciate suggestions for fixing.
