Mongolian script

I quote from the wiki page on Mongolian script. Hudum Mongolian script (in comparison with Todo Mongolian script), was the first of many writing systems created for the Mongolian language and the most successful until the introduction of Cyrillic to Mongolia in 1946. With minor modification, the classic vertical script is used in Inner Mongolia to this day to write both Mongolian and the Evenki language.

The Mongolian vertical script was developed as an adaption of the Uyghur script to write the Mongolian language. It was introduced by the Uyghur scribe Tatar-Tonga, who had been captured by the Mongols during a war against the Naimans around 1204. There were no substantive changes to the Uyghur form for the first few centuries. Mongolian sources often distinguish the early forms by using the term Uyghurjin script. Western sources tend to use this term as a synonym for all variations of the Mongolian script.

Eventually, minor concessions were made to the differences between the Uyghur and Mongol languages: In the 17th and 18th centuries, smoother and more angular versions of tsadi became associated with [...] and [...] respectively, and in the 19th century, the Manchu hooked yodh was adopted for initial [...]. Zain was dropped as it was redundant for [...]. Various schools of orthography, some using diacritics, were developed to avoid ambiguity.

Mongolian is written vertically. The Uyghur script and its descendants-Mongolian, Oirat Clear, Manchu, and Buryat-are the only vertical scripts written from left to right. This developed because the Uyghurs rotated their Sogdian-derived script, originally written right to left, 90 degrees counterclockwise to emulate Chinese writing, but without changing the relative orientation of the letters.

Omar Type
[Muhammad Zuhair Albazi]

Arabic type foundry. Typefaces include Muhammad Musa Albazi Naskh and Zuhair Albazi Naskh. They specialize in true calligraphic Tatweel typefaces.

Muhammad Zuhair Albazi is based in Lahore, Pakistan. He made the Naskh font Musa Albazi Naskh (2009). He also created Adobe Naskh. His main Arabic typeface to date is Zuhair Albazi Naskh, an advanced OpenType Arabic typeface, which is based on the Ottoman manuscript. He writes: This unique typeface contains an unmatched range of features known from the Arabic script. It is not merely a font but an ultimate typesetting and design tool for the Arabic script in classic Naskh style, with letters variants and calligraphic styles, specifically developed to take advantage of the extensive functionality for Naskh Arabic typography. The typeface allowd many controls such as shape alternates, space adjustments, mark placements, and swashes. Two very special features: Calligraphic Naskh kashida (Tatweel) upto three levels of elongations, so the Kashida distribution and frequence can be precisely controlled to create Arabic calligraphic documents without a calligrapher; thousands of kerning pairs for the fine adjustment of letters specially after Raa, Zaa, Waw and before Kaaf.

In 2017, he published Omar Naskh and writes: Omar Naskh is an amazing Naskh font having full Unicode support for Arabic script till Unicode version 9.0. The font covers all the languages of Arabic Script like Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Saraiki, Kazakh, Uyghur, Punjabi, Khowar (Chitrali), Malay (Jawi), Balochi, Brahui, Kurdi (Kurdish), Kashmiri (Koshur), Kirghiz, Ozbek, Turkmen and Gawri (Kalami).
