Arabic word that hides a dash?!
 
Seems like Games, however when decomposed:

العـاب = العاب ?

No!!! One is ا ل ع ـ ا ب and the other is ا ل ع ا ب

Strange thing that dash "-" being mingled on the word and doesn't show?!

This is cool! I can see now the dash on your quote on FF only, but I can't see it on the Chrome, Opera or IE8 on the same quote!

What is this strange char? It can lead to scam sales!

Correct. All IDN's with it will die shortly.

Interesting that it can hide itself so easily.
