Why some persian tests appear with capital letters ?

پستتوسط Kouros » 04 سپتامبر 2005, 16:23

Hello, I am really new to this forum. I have a problem that some persian texts only appear in capital letters abd are thus unreadable. e.g. the letters of the title 'Hoghoughe bashar' in 'news.gooya.com won't appear 'sare ham' but only with as uppercase letters. Any ideahow to solve this?
I am using Mac OS X 10.4.2 and Safari 2.0.1. Thanks a lot.
Kouros.'

Times is harmless. You can keep it. Times New Roman and Arial are the problem.

I forgot to ask you this. Is your hint documented somewhere, or how did you find it out? I couldn't find anything on the web after several trials.... Thanks again.

This is a known issue and every Mac user of Arabic script (Farsi, Arabic, Urdu etc.) encounter this problem. I'm not sure if it's documented properly because it is not a stand alone issue. It's an unfortunate byproduct of differences between Apple font technology and MS font technology.
But it is widely discussed in forums of users of this script. Here in IRMUG it was discussed repeatedly. I found two previous discussion on this subject in IRMUG:
http://irmug.com/portal/index.php?name= ... opic&t=155

http://irmug.com/portal/index.php?name= ... topic&t=64

BTW if you click on British flag on the top of the site, you go to MEMUG, our English site. It's better to post in English over there because the knowledge can be shared with other Mac users of Arabic script.

... and welcome to our community!

Kouros... now that you have removed those fonts could you please try and launch yahoo messenger. since i have removed those fonts my yahoo messenger doesn't work any more! i suspect one of those three files is the main font in yahoo and during start up of yahoo messenger if not found, results in yahoo messenger not running! but i could be wrong.

thanks.

I have removed those fonts (twice on two different Macs already) and Yahoo Messenger hasn't had a problem. I would try re-installing Messenger.
Regards.
