I think it looks best with all the vowels and other diacritics, but I'm not a fan of the ligatures. They're more for handwriting to me.

I don't use the ligatures much myself, aside from لا which is obligatory, but I recognize them when others write them.
Personally I think it's enough of a pain to learn how each letter connects with the others, but to each his own.
How's your Arabic coming along?
No, I mean that's the usual way of spelling the word في. It's normal letter-joining, not a ligature, strictly speaking.Neqitan wrote:But many fonts don't support that!—being لا the only compulsory one...
Ligatures with those letters are among the most common. Most have fallen out of use. There used to be hundreds, some involving three or more letters, like those of Devanagari. You can see why people stopped using them.Yeah, to each his own. I mainly started liking them when I saw a friend's friend writing his name (Saala7) with a laam + 7aa' ligature—but me being unable to recognize it.
Yes, I love all ligatures but meem + 7aa'/jiim/khaa'. Those look ugly.
Hey, I've had that moment recently. I imagine it takes a lot longer for Mandarin than most languages though.I've pretty much put it on hold for now. Two weeks ago I looked at some Mandarin books with which I started learning it and everything made a lot of sense to me! (One of those "Eureka moments" iwsfutcmd used to talk about.) I'll return later, don't worry about it.
