I was researching how to typeset traditional Arabic texts in LaTeX and stumbled on this research article published on tug.org from back in 2006 (link).
- Does there exist a more modern/better approach, using
harfbuzz), to get the same/better results?
I'm specific interested in typesetting this part from the research pager, that is in the Arabic font 'Amiri' (link) (in the words of the typeface designer, quote: "a digital typeface to be used in typesetting Koranic verses."):
- The solution should provide options for individual letter/mark/vowel colouring
Open regarding alternative typefaces, however they explicit need to typeset all the mark/vowels of classic/traditional Arabic text (like the Quran)
Only text-based solution (the numbering between verses are not necessary)
