Frequently Asked Questions

1. Difference between ligature and character based Urdu publishing system?
Urdu is very calligraphic script which has traditionally been written by hand. Due to complexity of the script it is very difficult for a computer program to properly render the text aesthetically. Because of this limitation InPage™ uses a Nastaliq font in which 18,000 ligatures have been hand crafted and digitized in outline format. This allows all Urdu words to be displayed with perfect quality at any size. InPage™ uses a character based technology to synthesize words not in its ligature dictionary. Following example of word Nastaliq written in Ligature and Character form demonstrates the difference between the two styles.
