Morea

 A MELA member thought this title by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens might be of interest to many:


A Historical and Economic Geography of Ottoman Greece: The Southwestern Morea in the 18th Century / by Fariba Zarinebaf, John Bennet, and Jack L. Davis
 
Further information, and online ordering, is available at:

The sender thinks that this 2nd attachment is the job description which stresses under "Preferred Qualifications" an ALA accredited degree and is probably the one most noticed in  North America.

Looking for Periodical


A researcher at the National Humanities Center is looking for
articles published in a periodical called "al-Majalla al-Suriyya" from 1928.
The detailed citation is in the attached document. We have not been able
to locate this publication in any of the available utilities. I'd be very greatful if somebody
on the list could let me know if they have any information concerning this title.

Many thanks,

-Christof Galli

font for arabic transliteration?

Which fonts are the best for Arabic transliteration in the PC environment? 
I may have asked this before but have forgotten. I think the macrons are 
easily available but what about sublilneal dots for Ha, Sad, Ta, etc.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks!
David

Re: font for arabic transliteration?

Gentium looks very nice, has all the diacritics, and is Unicode.  It's much nicer looking than MS Arial Unicode.  There is listing of fonts at:

Re: font for arabic transliteration?

Yes Gentium (http://scripts.sil.org/gentium/) is very nice 
and it was just re-released under a license that permits  
modification and redistribution - the SIL Open Font 
License.  This new development will give great freedom to 
people who  find Gentium useful, and the freedom to extend 
the font if needed.
