Smart Features

This font uses state-of-the-art OpenType and Graphite font technologies, including variant glyphs for a number of characters for use in particular contexts. Read more about our smart font features.

Character Set Support

The Harmattan font does not contain complete coverage of all the characters defined in Unicode for Arabic script. Because the font style is specifically intended for West Africa, the character set for this font is aimed at West African languages. Thus, Asia-specific characters are not included.

Common questions

What characters are included with this release?

See Character Set Support for the full listing.

I notice that Harmattan is missing a number of characters that I would like. Will you add these?

It is impossible for us to add every glyph that every person desires, but we do place a high priority on adding complete coverage of all the characters defined in Unicode for West African Arabic script use (excluding the Arabic Presentation Forms blocks, which are not recommended for normal use). You can send us your requests, but please understand that we are unlikely to add symbols where the user base is very small, unless they have been accepted into Unicode.
