Lateef and Scheherazade from SIL work fine too. I have them for a long time, when I downloaded them, Jonathan Kew was at SIL.

Wow Zdenek! Didn't know you did Arabic too!

I don't know how we'll end up implementing this.

You may also look at Jonathan Kew's

recommendations for usage.

If there are further similar issues, maybe it would be best to put them in this thread.

Dochashmee he is used in Urdu to denote aspirated consonants. With exception of د ڈ ڑ that do not connect (they have only he initial and final forms), the remaining characters should be connected. The attached picture shows the correct result with Nafees Naskh and wrong result with FreeSerif. The picture also shows all characters that may be followed by dochashmee he in Urdu.
