Middle Eastern Unicode fonts for Windows computers


The following lists of Middle Eastern Unicode fonts are probably not comprehensive, they are just the ones that I have acquired with various operating systems and applications, or found while learning about Unicode from the Web. Not all of the characters in a given range will always be present in a font; you can use a utility such as Babel Map to see exactly which characters are included.
