Naves Nastaliq

This looks like its going to be a good font. but the linkages do not work in OSX when using text edit which seems to be hte premier programme for writing in unusual languages.

Any hints from anyone?

Re: Naves Nastaliq

The Nastaliq Navees font was developed for Apple's QuickDraw GX technology, part of Mac OS versions 7.x and 8. This system is now obsolete. It would be nice to update the font for current technology (Mac OS X, Unicode, AAT), but we have not had the time and resources to work on this; therefore, it will not work with today's software.

Re: Naves Nastaliq

Any chance this font (or at leaset the glyphs composing it and some documentation about has this font was designed) got released under a free software lisence? so that free comunity can pick it and, hopfully, port it to modern font technologies like AAT and graphite. I'd personally like to work on such font.

Re: Naves Nastaliq

The MacArabic-encoded font works fine in Snow Leopard, with no changes necessary.
