Hello there,

I wonder why working with fonts is soo hard in ConText (much easier in Word or CorelDraw).

See this following font (free, opensource): http://fonts.qurancomplex.gov.sa/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/UthmanTN1-Ver10.zip

And try now this Context-Code:

\definefont[arabic][file:UthmanTN1Ver10.ttf*arabic at 15pt]



مِن قَبْلُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَأَنزَلَ ٱلْفُرْقَانَۗ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِـَٔايَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ ذُو ٱنتِقَامٍ


You see, this little signs above the letters are vanished in the PDF. But they are set in CoreDraw (for example). Why, what is the problem?

Similar problems you can see with another font, no problem in CorelDraw, but problems in ConText.
Hope for help.

Thank you very much.
