That is a lot different than Arabic fonts.

Well, I miss understood you email
I just sent you a link to a zip file of all of true Arabic fonts I had - 182 files.

Well if you want swirls and such, it sounds like a "brush" or "calligraphy" style.

Not quite.  It has to be readable as English

Just with a style that looks vaguely Arabic or reminiscent of Arabic swirls.

Actually Stuart's idea inspired me so i jumped on a Windows machine and got something that is quite 
nice and is good enough.  It's only for a coffee morning so i'm happy to run with what i have 
already.  It might be good to have something better for the future though! :)

Hi :)
I have a good Arabic font but it's in Arabic.  I've got to get a poster together for an Arabic 
ladies coffee morning and having trouble finding a font that looks vaguely Arabic but is in fact 
English.  DOes anyone know of a good free one?
Regards from  Tom :)  Many non-English fonts keep the Latin letters for the initialglyphs.  What 
you are looking for is a font that does not have any Latin glyphs?
When I have a few minutes, I will see if I have one.

Any particular style in mind?  Any dialect?
