NOTE: This is a beta release and contains known bugs, so use the fonts at your own risk. But we appreciate bug reports or requests for enhancements.
According to our best knowledge, FarsiWeb Fonts are the first Unicode compliant versions of these fonts, and the first set of fonts ever to conform to the Iranian national standard ISIRI 6219. The fonts currently support the Persian, Arabic, and Azerbaijani languages (as written in the Arabic script).
The fonts are conforming to the Unicode, ISIRI 6219, OpenType, and Adobe glyph naming standards as much as possible. The support will increase in newer versions, which will contain more glyphs, and better support for small sizes for selected fonts which makes them suitable for web use.
You can freely share and distribute all of the fonts, if you don't sell them directly (with no accompanying software), or change or rename them. Some of these fonts are licensed under the GNU General Public License (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/licenses.html#GPL), which will give you even more rights as a user and developer. For more details, see the license field of the fonts themselves, and the file COPYING.txt. Other kinds of licensing is also available from Sharif FarsiWeb Inc, which can be contacted at "info at farsiweb.info".
The FarsiFonts project was sponsored by the High Council of Informatics of Iran (http://www.shci.ir/) and Sharif University of Technology (http://www.sharif.ir/). We wish to thank them for supporting standards and free software.
