 Hi;
 I wanted to know if there is a standard format for Postal address and
 telephone numbers in Iran.

I've heard from employees of IPM (people reponsible for .ir) that
there is a standard format the Minisitry of Communications is
recommending, and it is written in a document. I have asked them for a
copy, but have not received it yet.

If you live in Iran, try contacting a post office or the ministry.

 But it has problem while using it in microsoft office.

Nesf2 has officially stopped development. There are many known bugs,
with no plans to fix them.

Re: FarsiFonts 0.3 (beta)

 1. Arabic Hamza Above (U+0654), Arabic Hamza Below (U+0655), Arabic 
 Subscript Alef (U+0656) and Arabic Maddah Above (U+0653) behave 
 differently from Arabic Fatha and so on. They behave more like a letter. 

This should be because of old software. What is the exact software you
are using for that? If you have a copy of MS Office 2003, for example,
can you reproduce the bug there?

 Also, try as an example the result of Arabic Letter Waw (U+0648) + 
 Arabic Hamza Above (U+0654) compared to Arabic Letter Waw With Hamza 
 Above (U+0624).

This is a bug. But I don't know if it can be fixed in a font instead of
in software. I will check and see.

 2. Arabic Letter Alef Maksura (U+0649) in initial and middle form is 
 shown incorrectly as single and end form (the same as famous Farsi Yeh 
 problem).

Again this is old software. I don't have the problem on Windows XP's
Notepad. And this cannot be fixed in the font.

 BTW, all the numerals are the same shape in different fonts.

This should be due to a setting somewhere. Would you please tell me
about the versions of software you're testing it with?

 Does anyone know how to convert Adobe pdf Farsi text
 to MS Word 2000 Farsi text?

It depends on the software that created the PDF page. In each case,
special decoding software should be written, since these packages
usually do not follow the Adobe standards.

Persian and Pan localization workshop

2004-01-25 Thread Roozbeh Pournader
I was at Lahore the last week as a trainer for a workshop called the
Fundamentals of Local Language Computing
(http://www.panl10n.net/training.htm). It was a wonderful experience
seeing Lahore, and meeting various people there, but I'm not writing
about that here.

Something that should be interesting for the members of this list, was
the announcement of an official translation of the user interface of
Microsoft Office 2003 to the Persian language (among others). What will
be there, is a wordlist-based spellchecker, and full translation of the
user interface and error messages of MS Office Standard Edition 2003
(Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word). It will be published as a gratis
add-on downloadable from Microsoft's website, installable over an
English version of MS Office 2003. The timing is still not known.

I saw a basic demo, and was generally impressed. I believe this has been
a good forward step for the users of the language, specially those who
don't know English.
