Known issues

  • Medial and Final high hamza characters may have collisions as these likely do not occur.
  • Lam/high hamza alef ligature does not form as it likely does not occur.
  • Many OpenType applications do not yet support Unicode 13.0 or 14.0 and may not correctly handle the characters in ranges U+0870..U+089F, U+08BE..U+08C7, U+FD40..U+FD4F, U+FDCF, and U+FDFE..U+FDFF.
  • The honorific ligatures that are currently encoded in the Private Use Area (PUA) of Unicode do not have right-to-left properties. In some cases, you can correct reading order problems by inserting a Right-to-Left mark (U+200F) after the honorific ligature. These have also been encoded using Unicode 14.0 codepoints, and because most applications do not support Unicode 14.0 users will still run into some issues in using them.
  • OpenType applications may not support the newest character additions to Unicode. They may render in new versions of Firefox and LibreOffice.
  • The more calligraphic honorifics do not yet have a bold.
  • In InDesign: some behaviors, such as the lam-alef ligature, raised kasra with shadda, and subtending marks, will not function correctly unless Ligatures is turned on in the Characters panel.
