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:
* Lateef Regular
This 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.
