arabxetex – An ArabTeX-like interface for X∃LaTeX
ArabX∃TeX provides a convenient ArabTeX-like user-interface for typesetting languages using the Arabic script in X∃LaTeX, with flexible access to font features. Input in ArabTeX notation can be set in three different vocalization modes or in roman transliteration. Direct UTF-8 input is also supported. The parsing and converting of ArabTeX input to Unicode is done by means of TECkit mappings. Version 1.0 provides support for Arabic, Maghribi Arabic, Farsi (Persian), Urdu, Sindhi, Kashmiri, Ottoman Turkish, Kurdish, Jawi (Malay) and Uighur. The documentation (not yet complete) covers topics such as typesetting the Holy Quran, typesetting bidirectional critical editions (with ednotes), and information on various recommended OpenType fonts for the Arabic script and for transliterating Oriental languages.
