arabxetex – An Arab-like interface for XeLaTeX

Arab provides a convenient Arab-like user-interface for typesetting languages using the Arabic script in XeLaTeX, with flexible access to font features. Input in Arab 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 Arab 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 covers topics such as typesetting the Holy Quran and typesetting bidirectional critical editions with the package ednotes.
