better arabic transliteration

Web-based Arabic Transliteration, now available as a bookmarklet. Clicking the bookmarklet gives me a hotkey to switch between English and العربية, even on this LiveJournal update form. This newer version also does input more like Japanese, where characters and digraphs are processed as you type; there's no longer a separation between the input box and the display box.

(This was all inspired by Taku's Japanese web-based IME, which is about a million times more hardcore than what I've done.)

(I also refer you to the previous post on the subject, where people had other suggestions and someone made a clone for Russian. It wouldn't be hard to modify my bookmarlet to support Russian, too...)
