Just click edit then delete
2. Did you kern any pair of letters?
3. Can you bring out / table all your ligatures? In a PDFile?
4. If you want your font to be added to our MirEmad, just email me.

The redundant threads have been deleted.

I want to echo Aziz, it would be good to have more and larger images or PDF file so that we can better appreciate the work.

Also, can you be more specific about what it is you want to do with this design? Do you want to license it to users directly? Or find a foundry to do this for you? What do you want to do?

Actually I do not know which way is better.
I tried to find Arabic Font Foundries on web but could not guess which foundries are popular for arabic fonts.
what should I do? license it directly by a new website or by font foundries?
Can you provide me the links of some great arabic foundries?
I will load some more Images of my work but what should be the dimentions of images.
I do not know how to make PDF files.

Here is how to make a PDF from MS Word:

1. Download and install the MS Office add-in 'Save as PDF'

2. Open your Word document showing your font, and use the 'Save as PDF' add-in to generate the PDF.

Typophile won't let you attach a PDF to a discussion comment, so you'll need to either upload the PDF to another website and provide a link from Typophile, or send the PDF to someone who can do this for you.

Here is a link that explains about image posting:

http://typophile.com/node/18067

Here are some key points:

bitmaps
• GIF, PNG or JPEG only, no TIFF or BMAP
• RGB only, no CMYK
• Do not exceed 590 pixels in width.

PDF
• PDFs should be vector files only eg not contain photos/bitmaps too.

I hope this helps.

Here is a Larger sample of my font with some ligatures and Marks positioning. Also observe the superscript alef on lam-yeh & beh-yeh.

You might try contacting the big sellers of type to see what terms they can offer you. This is not going to be a complete list and my apologies in advance if I am leaving out a foundry that sells & supports Arabic; but you might try contacting ( in no particular order): Monotype/Linotype, Myfonts, Fontshop, Microsoft, Tiro Typeworks, Dalton Maag, Ascender, Typotheque, Sakkal Design & Adobe.

You also might want to contact Fiona Ross at Reading University.

You can also search typophile for threads about this subject in the

This is the Arabic section of Typophile
http://typophile.com/forum/366

This section deals with Releasing fonts
http://typophile.com/forum/7

And also, you can search for things on typophile ( in this case looking for "arabic" and "release" ) using by putting this in the google search:

Also, I had assumed that you know about Tasmeem. But in case you don't:
