I just spent the last week learning how to create a font so that I can create a fully functional arabic font with ligatures and diacratic marks and an Open Type library etc....
Well, I just tried to enter arabic text from the "Times New Roman" font into a static text box in macromedia flash, and the characters would not merge(i.e. the glyph's did not automatically change to the correct contextual ones).
After hours of searching, I'm assuming its hopeless, but as a last ditch effort, I'd like to know if there is something I can possibly do when building my font to make the ligatures and diacratic marks appear as I want them to in Macromedia Flash (rather than as separate letters, I'd like them to join together, much like this:
با = ا + ب
well, if anyone knows of anything that I can do when creating my font, I would appreciate it.
