The only difference that I can see between FF and IE is that IE is using kashidas to justify lines and FF is not. If this is what you mean, then the bug is a duplicate of bug 185600. If you are seeing another problem, please explain more clearly what it is.
(In reply to comment #1) Dear Simon, Thank you for your post. I visited bug 185600. I tried out the attachement and it seemed to work fine unlike the webpage attached here. I am no expert in this field and don't know what kashida's are to be honest. I recently moved to FF as I find it faster to work with than IE. All Arabic pages I have visited so far work fine except for the one attached here. What I see on my page is that the letters are not aligned vertically to the same base. And thus the text looks horrible and difficult to read.
Can you attach a screenshot?
Created attachment 159179 [details] Screen shot depicting problem Please note how the vertical alignment of the letters is offset from the baseline.
Do you have the font "Arabic Transparent" (which the page specifies) on your system? I do have the font and I don't see the bug.
I do have the font and am truly puzzled with the problem as it only occurs with this website and as it seems now on my laptop only! I can not pinpoint the problem, but will try installing FF on a Virtual PC to see if things work out better there.
