First, these fonts are not mine, or my team's, I just have been
asking for more glyphs too :). Second, these characters does not
handle Persian, or in fact are never used in Persian.
Nadim et al, I have attached a map of the Unicode Arabic block,
annotated for Persian, based on the national standard. The
characters with white background are not used in Persian. All
the others are required. But there are lots of other characters
that I'm not going to list here.
BEHNAM OR ROOZBEH, WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND THE DOCUMENT FROM MEHRAN
WHICH LISTS THE CHARACTERS AND GLYPHS FOR PERSIAN FONTS?
