Dear Mohamed, and SW List members:
I will be happy to call the section Saudi Arabia on the web...and
please send me any other signs you would like me to post....
I am sorry about errors in the Arabic. I do not read Arabic, so I
didn't realize. But there is an excellent solution....
On your computer, Mohamed, open the Manual in Arabic and make a
screen capture (a graphic file) of the entire manual, screen by
screen, keeping the graphics files in order by number for me...(do
not name the graphics files with names that are in words, only name
them in numbers, since I cannot read your word-names - some of the
graphics files you sent me before had names in weird symbols I could
not read and it got confusing for me).
Then send me all the screen captures of the entire manual, and I will
post it as graphics files on the web in order, so the Arabic manual
will be available in full on the web. From there we can create a PDF
file of the graphics...without using an Arabic font -
So there is a solution that will last, avoiding fonts!
