I was using this code to render some Arabic text by understanding your provided demo's "ArabicTest.html" in which you have used "XB Niloofar.ttf" font file for some Arabic text, it working great with other custom true type fonts as well but there is a limitation, if i need to render a glyph from this font file which is not mapped to any Unicode character what's the way out there?

For example in your "XB Niloofar.ttf" there is a last Glyph named (i saw a tool tip from font book) "Glyph 922" how can i use this glyph in my Arabic text while its not mapped to any Unicode character, while your code is working fine for all those glyphs mapped to any Unicode character.

You can only use glyphs that ARE mapped.
