Please note that this font does not provide automatic support for the The Unicode Standard. The Nastaliq Navees font is an obsolete, symbol-encoded font requiring the obsolete QuickDraw GX technology. The use of Nastaliq Navees is discouraged.

Note that an application must use GX typography functions to work with Nastaliq Navees; applications which claim to use GX but in fact only use the GX printing system, not GX typography, will not be useful. To experiment with Nastaliq Navees before investing in major GX-based applications, you can try freely available programs such as GXWrite, PosterGX, demo versions of the commercial applications mentioned, or (if familiar with the TeX typesetting system) the shareware TeXgX.
