Hi Ammar,
That’s great.  Thank you.
We can include that as part of Aquamacs.
I would probably name it `arabic-mac’ instead - what do you think?

Would an `mac-emulate-arabic-keyboard-mode’ be useful?  This would then go in the Options->Option Key menu.
(I don’t know the arabic keyboard layout at all, so I have to ask.)

One issue I have with the layout is that diacritics will not show up at the end of the letter “la” (unicode: U+FEFB) but it is still written if I check the file with other editors. I also modified it to write Arabic numbers instead of the English counterparts.
