Lateef is named after Shah Abdul Lateef Bhitai, the famous Sindhi
mystic and poet. It is intended to be an appropriate style for use
in Sindhi and other languages of the South Asian region.
This font provides a simplified rendering of Arabic script, using basic
connecting glyphs but not including a wide variety of additional ligatures
or contextual alternates (only the required lam-alef ligatures). This
simplified style is often preferred for clarity, especially in non-Arabic
languages, but may be considered unattractive in more traditional and
literate communities.
This release supports virtually all of the Unicode 5.0 Arabic character
repertoire (excluding the Arabic Presentation Forms blocks, which are not
recommended for normal use). Font smarts are implemented using OpenType
