    Default Do you have Italics/Bold in Arabic and Hebrew?

    Do you know if the idea of having Italics/Bold texts in Hebrew and/or Arabic exist?

    I guess you have Iranic font style. That's basically the same as italics but it goes with the right-to-left direction of the script

    True! Do you know if it's available in MS Word?

    I just found that it was invented by Gholamhossein Mosaheb in the 50s. He was a mathematician from Iran. It was first thought for the Persian-Farsi language, and is now commonly applied/used to the Arabic language.

    Another nice example of the thin frontier between Science and Linguistics!

    What about Hebrew?

    I don't know if something similar occurs in Hebrew.
    Anyway, applying italics to arabic/hebrew texts in MS Word is an non-sense, because it would not be right to tilt the font to the right when the reading order is right to left

    Do you know how/where to install/download this "Iranic" style? I would love to try it!
