For CV, that would correspond to a Hindi typewriter, so the odds look
good. The Remington keyboard layout is taken from the typewriter
design. However, the typewriter had non-spacing keys for repha
(roughly <RA,VIRAMA>) and vattu (<VIRAMA, RA>), so you'll be out of luck
for consonant clusters. On the other hand, <KA, VIRAMA, SSA> is two
key strokes - the cells would be for <KA, VIRAMA, SSA, VIRAMA> and
<SIGN AA>! There's an implementation of the keyboard in the M17N
database - hi-remington.mim.

Apart from wcwidth("لآ") = 2, Khaled has already said in this thread
that there are such fonts.
