Cool Insert Symbol Format Reversion (Arabic)

I am inserting a lot of symbols in a document, and have set the shortcut keys to all be combinations of the alt key + a letter: alt+d, alt+a, etc. There is one symbol (character code 00FE default shortcut alt+0254, "Latin small letter Thorn") which, every time I hit the shortcut (set to alt+p) key for it , a) does not appear and b) changes the language setting to Arabic. Something is inserted, because for however many times I hit the shortcut I will have to hit backspace that many times to get back to the previous letter.

I need to have country names on the left and percentages on the right.So my text is not always the same.I followed your instructions just to see if I could make you example work, but I couldn’t get it to work.

I am willing to work on the problems or consensus issues. However people keep saying there is no consensus, but they are unwilling to specify where is the no consensus. Please specify the problems and what your doubts are, so I will know which are in higher priority and focus my explanations on them. I will try to explain some of the reasons why I make the changes. Consensus and agreement could be made in this regard.
