Salaamu Alaykum,

I appreciate your efforts as well, Sister Ummziba!  But those funny characters make my eyes bug out.

Assalamu alaikum,

 The "funny characters" will turn into Arabic if you set your computer to read that language!  (Yes, I get the joke, just put that for the benefit of others who might not!)  Now, if only I could tell you how to do it .

Peace, ummziba.

Angel, that is the Arabic 'calligraphy', as you call it - your computer has to be set to read it or you just see a bunch of gobilty goop, I can read it fine.

Thanks so much Sister Alwardah, that answers my question perfectly!

Now, may I ask: do you have a link to the Arabic keyboard that you use?  I would love to be able to post Arabic letters........

Peace, ummziba.
