--- Comment #22 from urdu.t...@gmail.com ---
* only "Nafees Web Naskh" was released under GPL (it is dual license). The rest
of nafees family has a custom license. In any case, "Nafees Nastaleeq" being an
early effort is not used anymore. 
* many of the nastaleeq font "owners" cannot release it under any license as
they have borrowed from Nuri commercial font.
* Amiri font is used on ar.wikipedia and is also suitable for Urdu as it has
many nastaleeq like shapes. This could be added to give users a choice in
addition to "Nafees Web Naskh."
http://sourceforge.net/projects/amiri/ 
* need to come out of "windows only" mindset. wikipedia cannot be for for
windows-only viewers.
