Summary: Awami Nastaliq, a Nastaliq-style Arabic script font family
Awami Nastaliq is a Nastaliq-style Arabic script font family supporting a wide
variety of languages of southwest Asia, including but not limited to Urdu. This
font is aimed at minority language support. This makes it unique among Nastaliq

Nastaliq, based on a centuries-old calligraphic tradition, is considered one of
the most beautiful scripts on the planet. Nastaliq has been called “the bride
of calligraphy” but its complexity also makes it one of the most difficult
scripts to render using a computer font. Its right-to-left direction, vertical
nature, and context-specific shaping provide a challenge to any font rendering
engine and make it much more difficult to render than the flat (Naskh) Arabic
script that it is based on. As a result, font developers have long struggled to
produce a font with the correct shaping but at the same time avoid overlapping
of dots and diacritics. In order to account for the seemingly infinite
variations, the Graphite rendering engine has been extended just to handle
these complexities properly.
