This font is fine, it's very good,
I meant another font, not the weight, a font that have a thick horiz line
not smooth curves, like Arabic glyphs in MS Times New Roman
because your font looks like Decotype Naskhi
it's a very nice font but it's not suitable for a fine-printed crowded
newspaper for example
the font I ask for is something that looks like a horz lines, ...etc.
