All you need to see our Arabic Farsi scripts is. . .
1. Internet Explorer 5.0 and
2. the latest version of Microsoft's Arial true type font.
Both of them are free to download from Microsoft's site.
Our site is realy multi-lingual. We use several different characters belonging to different character-sets:
ISO Latin 1, ISO Latin 2 (ISO 8859-2) and Arabic characters (ISO ???).
To make life easier, we've decided to comply with
. So we don't have our own special fonts for Farsi/Arabic scripts.
All you need to have on your machine is updated versions
of your standard windows fonts with Arabic support.
MS-Windows Unicode fonts with Arabic support are: Arial, Times New Roman and Courier New.
So far we've used only one of them namely ARIAL true type font.
If you are a MS-PC user or Mac user you can
download and install the latest verion of Arial font directly from Microsoft's site.
The file is called Arial32.exe.
Go to Microsoft's TrueType core fonts for the Web.
Scroll down to find Arial font. Download Arial32.exe to a temp directory.
When done, double-click on the Arial32.exe and it will install itself and reboot your computer.
to make sure that you can see Arabic characters.
Linux/Unix users have access to lots of Unicode fonts. But please note that Arabic support is essential if you want to see our farsi scripts.
We will be very gratefull to you, users of other operative systems, if you could
let us know HOW-TO
find and install Unicode fonts on different browsers and machines.
All documents on this site include a HTML line of code (meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8")
which tells browsers to interpret characters as Unicode. But you know that you can set your
brower's encoding type
Please do that if UTF-8 encoding persists when you leave our site and visit others which forget to mention encoding type
in their HTML-code.
