arabic transliteration

Quick hack: Simple Arabic Transliterator. You type in roman letters and it shows Arabic. Try e.g. "aljbr" to see the word that "algebra" comes from.

I feel like I've written this program four times, though maybe making it web-based will make it useful for other people. It's pretty straightforward except it uses a longest-match rule so "kh" produces a different character than "k".

I wrote this one for Meena, who then wrote me a short email in Arabic in return. I can read about half of it.
