 ===== Notes ===== ===== Notes =====
-;Sequential Tanweens: There are two types of tanweens used in [[Medina Mushaf]]: //normal tanweens// which are used in regular places (e.g., in Izhar), and //​sequential tanweens// which are used to demonstrate Idgham and Ikhfa. Since there is no standard support in Unicode for sequential tanweens, me_quran font uses a combination of characters to render these special types of tanweens. More precisely, a sequential tanween is represented by adding a small meem after a normal tanween. However, the resulting combination can be only viewed properly in me_quran font. Using other fonts, you would see extra small meems around tanweens if you enable "​sequential tanweens"​ upon downloading Uthmani Quran text from our [[http://​tanzil.net/​download/​|download page]]. 
  
-;Special lam+hamza+alefWhen a hamza is placed between lam and alef, like in <​code>​وَٱلْـَٔاخِرَة</​code>​, ordinary Arabic fonts are not able to render lam and alef nicely like what they do in regular cases, e.g. in <​code>​لا</​code>​. In me_quran, a rule is added to render lam+hamza+alef (i.e., ​<​code>​لءا</​code>​) nicely. However, this combination is rendered disjointed in almost all other Arabic fonts. Tanzil Quran text by default uses lam+tatweel+superscrit_hamza+alef (i.e., ​<​code>​لـَٔا</​code>​) to keep the text compatible with the majority of Arabic fonts. If you like to use our Quran text only with me_quran font, you can check "​Special lam+hamza+alef"​ upon [[http://​tanzil.net/​download/​|downloading]] the text.+  * **Sequential Tanweens** \\ There are two types of tanweens used in [[Medina Mushaf]]: //normal tanweens// which are used in regular places (e.g., in Izhar), and //​sequential tanweens// which are used to demonstrate Idgham and Ikhfa.
