comment Undefined font shape
Italics in Arabic script are just slanted (faked) versions. Just remembering, italics make no sense in Fraktur either. There are other ways to emphasize words, though. I'd rather underline, use bold or even a different font/style for Arabic script (that's what "italics" were in the beginning).

comment BibTeX loses capitals when creating .bbl file
This is so far the best answer to this annoying bibtex styles "feature". Fortunately with biblatex we don't have to deal with this anymore.

I can hardly believe that Cambridge University Press couldn't afford typesetting such a book in 1986.

comment Title Page and more
Nice work! Although today's fonts can't match the originals, none of the Caslon fonts I've tried could replicate the historical S correctly.

If you can buy a typewriter, you'll get the same aesthetics and appeal.

comment Acrobat Pro DC and WinEdt
Then, that's a very specific WinEdt Acrobat Pro DC problem. Use another editor/viewer, and your problems will go away.

comment Acrobat Pro DC and WinEdt
If you are compiling a document with Acrobat Reader open, you'll get an error. If you are just editing the document, you won't need Acrobat open anyway (just after you compile, to see the results). Or maybe use another editor/viewer.
