Hi all,

For some Arabic text we need an underline to start (or end) halfway 
throuh a word. The <u> markup for that is interrupting the characters 
and therefore killing the required ligatures (writing variants of the 
characters). Would anyone know a proper way around this? Example in Word 
(they know how to do it):

[Y_YX'X2 Y>ZZ>[ _X*Z>[[]
