The glorious Qur'an is written in a much more involved variant of Arabic orthography than normal Arabic text.
This sophisticated variant which is called Ottoman orthography is hard to implement digitally as full-fledged textual
medium. Consequently, except for very few parties, pages of Ottoman orthography are handled statically as rigid
bitmaps resulting in very limited functionality of the hosting software.
RDI is one of those few parties who provide a wide arsenal of tools that enable handling Ottoman orthogrphy with the same flexibility of other Arabic fonts on the various computing platforms.
from Atlas and
from Playnetics, web Qur'an portals
like that of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Endowments & Islamic Affairs, and many other products all use RDI's Ottoman solutions in this regard.
