Could this be the new sticky for Arabic and Farsi numbers? The old info is gone. There are also some differences between the two as shown below. If this is made a sticky I hope it will be helpfull to our members and guests.

First here is ARABIC


----0... ٠
----1... ١
----2... ٢
----3... ٣
----4... ٤
----5... ٥
----6... ٦
----7... ٧
----8... ٨
----9... ٩



Here is FARSI

----0... ۰
----1... ۱
----2... ۲
----3... ۳
----4... ۴
----5... ۵
----6... ۶
----7... ۷
----8... ۸
----9... ۹

Also note that numerals are read from left to right (like English) whereas the written words are read from right to left. For instance,

صنع فی مسر ۱۳۴۲

Would translate to "Made in Egypt 1342", not "Made in Egypt 2431". This is the convention in Arabic, Persian, and other derived writing systems. This extends beyond things like dates to serial numbers, part numbers, and anything else using numerals.
