smart Unicode font for Arabic
DescriptionScheherazade, named after the heroine of the classic Arabian Nights tale, is designed in a similar style to traditional typefaces such as Monotype Naskh, extended to cover the full Unicode Arabic repertoire. The goal for this product was to provide a single Unicode-based font family that would contain a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost any Arabic-based writing system. This font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies to support complex typographic issues. This font provides a simplified rendering of Arabic script, using basic connecting glyphs but not including a wide variety of additional ligatures or contextual alternates (only the required lam-alef ligatures). This simplified style is often preferred for clarity, especially in non-Arabic languages, but may be considered unattractive in more traditional and literate communities. One font from this typeface family is included in this release:
- Scheherazade RegularThis release supports virtually all of the Unicode 5.0 Arabic character repertoire (excluding the Arabic Presentation Forms blocks, which are not recommended for normal use). Font smarts are implemented using OpenType technology.
