0 CHANGES IN V1.2
=================

I added support for LuaTeX 0.95 by including package luatex85 and by changing \luatextextdir into \textdir in file dad.sty.


1 INTRODUCTION
==============

This LaTeX package allows simple typesetting in Arabic script, intended for mixed Latin-Arabic script usage, in situations where heavy-duty solutions are discouraged.
The ض system operates with both Unicode and transliterated input, allowing the user to choose the most appropriate approach for every situation.

A paper describing the package has been submitted to TUGboat.
