Dear All,

I realise this is a bit of a sales pitch, but it's a mutual benefit pitch.

SIL's Awami Nastaliq font has just been released This is a nastaliq Arabic font that, in combination with LibreOffice (since it's Graphite only) makes LibreOffice the most powerful accessible word processing system for not just Urdu but all the languages of Pakistan that use nastaliq.

So if you are of know of users in that region, please let them know that they now have the capability to produce nice looking text for free!

BTW the font also works in FireFox. So you can put up webpages with it too.
