Scheherazade (Supported)

Current version: 1.001, released June 22, 2007

Scheherazade is an extended Arabic script font designed by SIL International for modern Unicode-based systems using either OpenType or AAT (Apple Advanced Typography) for complex-script rendering. Currently available in Regular weight only.

Scheherazade, named after the heroine of the classic Arabian Nights tale, is designed in a similar style to traditional typefaces such as Monotype Naskh, extended to cover the full Unicode Arabic repertoire.
