    Hello Pierre,

    It turns out that all the fonts I have at hand do not have italic
    outlines for Arabic.It looks like Arabic doesn't use italic to
    emphasize text at all (but I'm not an expert here).

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov

    >> ArialMT Italic and ArialMT BoldItalic have no glyphs for Arabic
    >> characters at all. It turns out to be a limitation of this font.
    PD> Ok, that's why...
    PD> By the way, do you know an italic font which has glyphs for Arabic
    PD> characters?

    PD> Best regards
    PD> Pierre
