I'm currently working on a package of Unicode compliant true type Farsi
fonts package, initially for Macintosh platform. But I don't think Unicode
fonts are platform dependent. As for the name confusion, all these fonts
have an "X" prefix embedded in their names, so there won't be any confusion
of name similarity (by people or computers) X stands for Macintosh OS X
operating system but it is particularly used to group all Farsi fonts in one
place, near the bottom of the font list!
The package is not ready yet. It's been delayed to correct few characters
(Hamza etc.) and include few characters uniquely used in Afghan texts (not
Farsi but Pashtun characters)
I'll let you know when and where they will be available.
