I really like the output as PDF as it seems so clean. Anway, for what it's
worth, here are some comments:
- Letters are borken on harakat (tashkeel or umlaut).
- Words at the end of the line are broken into separate lines, i.e. last one
two letters that don't fit on the same line, are put separately on a new line.
- In the title up, the Arabic word 'April' has not shaping at all.

Other than this, it's really cool.
