You can write Persian in GNOME, KDE, and Mozilla with late version of Red Hat, althought with different levels of support. XFree86 also has a keyboard layout called 'ir' for the Iranian Standard ISIRI 2901:1994. glibc also has a Persian locale, allowing Persian special sorting (like proper handling of Hamza), localized digits output, and things like that. Of course the level of support in Red Hat 9 is a little higher (fixed more bugs, etc). The major problem seems to be free and Unicode-compatible fonts. To my best knowledge, no Persian font exists that passes that criteria. roozbeh _______________________________________________ FarsiWeb mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/farsiweb
