Arabic keyboard has strange default number font

Strange number font happens when changing between Roman and Arabic characters.

The numbers look like an italic font, but after you hit a few roman letters, then the number font changes back to non-italic.

Need some real test cases to understand the compose and right-to-left needs for arabic. Here is where the tests need to be documented: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Tests/I18N/keyboards/Arabic

I don't understand what exactly is the problem and in which activity does it happen. Any way, current default Arabic fonts are almost useless that I don't expect any good.
