I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I am using the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I am working in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic
  • Greek

comment Bibliography with BibLaTeX: Do not abbreviate first given (first) name and abbreviate all further given names
Since you provided such a nice solution, wouldn't that be something worth integrating into biblatex as a further option to firstinits=true? (Has someone already suggested this to the maintainer of biblatex?)

comment csquotes and invalid nesting with two nested \mkbibquotes
Thanks. That's good to know! Any ideas as to why there is a default maxlevel=2 at all? Shouldn't that be up to the sanity of the author?

comment Arabic Vowels not appearing
You might add اللهِ as a third line to your example because this is -- I think -- what the Noor wants (if I understood him correctly).

comment Arabic Vowels not appearing
by the way: what do you mean by "When i'm writing with the vowels, it is becomming like الله"? -- isn't الله what you want?
