The first problem is that the Helvetica font does not contain any of
the characters you are looking for. Going beyond that, we don't yet
have proper support for the 'character shaping' needed.

I regret it's best to assume we don't support Persian yet; but if you
are interested in helping others to work on this, see the threads on
RTL here.....
