smart Unicode font for Arabic
Scheherazade, 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
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 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.
