Traditional Arabic fonts have stems and curves going all over the place, compared to Latin, where verticals and horizontals dominate. Hinting Latin - I think - relies on such uniformity, but what about Arabic? Will an Arabic font benefit from hinting? My font has outlines of identical thickness - does this help the hinting process? Any hints (!) suggestions and examples most welcome as I know very little in practice about this.
