 what a suitable font would be to test it with.
 it's possibly a webkit issue,as i read on the net that all the webkit
 based browsers, from safari to chrome had sufferd from this problem in the
 past and got fixed by their respective devs.
 and it's not a font issue either,because,a)i'm using the default ones that
 work in Tracker and i also tested with some specific arabic fonts the
 problem remained unchanged,b)the font fallback problem affects arabic &
 hebrew chars see ticket #6967, where as web+ displays hebrew sites
 so hopefully this info gives you some directions as to where to look.
