Abstract

Arabic and certain other languages (for example, Farsi and Urdu) have cursive alphabets, most of the letters of which have different shapes depending on the position of the letter in a word. Each letter may be in the initial position, a medial position or the final position in a word, or may be an isolated letter. When forming text using an alphabet of this type, the correct shape of each letter must be used.
