Opening this bug to paste some links somewhere.
Odder used Pak Type Tehreer to create the new logo for the Urdu Wikipedia, but some user told us that it would be better to use a font in Nastaʿlīq script (also written Nastalique, Nastaleeq, Nastaliq).
- SIL has a free font but "Nastaliq Navees font is an obsolete, symbol-encoded font requiring the obsolete QuickDraw GX technology" and they're not working on an update: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=Nastaliq&_sc=1 (could still be enough for specific use cases like creating a logo, but not for WebFonts).
- Google early access didn't find any free font: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/early-access-fonts/ll-d7jq4X_8/HsPCAhFS9KIJ
- CRULP created a font and shared insights on how to do so, but the font itself is not free: http://www.apdip.net/projects/ictrnd/2002/nafees
- Someone was recently trying to create a new OFL font: http://typophile.com/node/95376
Whiteboard: considered feature, font
