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 Transliteration problem with arabxetex package
I would highly recommend to type Arabic characters and their transliteration directly with unicode (كتاب and kitāb) and to avoid using that package which -- IMHO -- now became somewhat obsolete.

@Herbert : Is your approach supposed to work only with that font?

comment textls breaks smallcaps with luatex
@Herbert : two questions: 1. I cannot find a Linux Libertine C anywhere on the internet. Where can I get it? I downloaded the most recent otf and ttf files (version 5.3.0), but there was no SmallCaps font in it. 2. So, I had to try your approach with other fonts, without success. Does your approach still work?
