mandarin

Hi, I'm working on a multi-lingual project for the first time and have been asked to find out if there are any standardised web fonts for each of the following languages:

• Hindi
• Urdi
• Arabic
• Mandarin

Similar to what we have in fonts such as Verdana, Georgia, and...say it quietly....Arial.

Really appreciate any help from the members of the board who may have experience in this field of typography. Of course, and insights from speakers of those languages would be deeply appreciated, as well. :)

Many thanks in advance!

Hello, this is my third post about chinese fonts, sorry about that, but I've just worked on a project in mandarin and, although the project is finished, am still looking into it.

I had some problems embedding Mac OSX fonts into PDF so I looked around a lot and found several complaints concerning the Heiti fonts (SC and TC) that are now standard in OS 10.6. This link is the best example http://fixhei.monoceroi.com.

Does anyone have an opinion on this? I can't read a word (or ideogram) in chinese so I really don't see the flaws. I am concerned that the font may be flawed and am trying to find out if it is safe to use it in text meant for chinese readers.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gabriel Attuy
