Arabic fonts in the forum

Postby proycon » 2008-11-11, 15:34

If you are writing Arabic text in the forum, then you can enclose this text in special tags which will render the text in a better and bigger font. It also takes automatic care of right-to-left markup.

The tag for arabic is ar:

Example with tags: السلام عليكم، أتكلم اللغة العربية

Example without tags: السلام عليكم، أتكلم اللغة العربية

Vocalised example with tags:كَتَبَ الْرَجُولُ الْكِتابَ

Vocalised example without tags: كَتَبَ الْرَجُولُ الْكِتابَ

In the post editor, you will find buttons for these tags.

Just noticed this when writing my previous post. Looks much better!
شُكْرًا جَزِيلاً!

(edit: when the Arabic text appeared in the first line, its top - including vocalization marks - was partially cut off. I'm using Firefox. Anything to do about it or just blame the browser? :wink: )

That would indeed be a local browser/font issue. Appearance can still differ considerably amongst different system, but generally font should be a lot better and bigger now.

Both fonts look too modernistic for my taste. I prefer the Naskh typeface used in the Living Language: Ultimate Arabic textbook, which is my primary Arabic resource at the moment. The font has much smoother teeth.
