The zero-width joiner (ZWJ) is a non-printing character used in the computerized typesetting of some complex scripts, such as the Arabic script or any of the Indic scripts. When placed between two characters that would otherwise not be connected, a ZWJ causes them to be printed in their connected forms. The ZWJ's Unicode is U+200D, and can be represented in HTML as ‍ or ‍.

Example
