At the Bahá'í Persian (I assume Farsi) site,
<>, there's a picture of some people at the
left. Underneath is some blue* Arabic script, which surely looks oblique
to my eyes! I'm wondering whether it should slope the other way, like
"citali", reverse-slanted oblique. *In my browser

The text size is quite small, so I magnified it to see what Farsi looks
like. My hope is to learn to "cheat" :) , to see some distinctive details
that distinguish it from the Arabic language; to do this without extensive
study of both. Especially in the last few years, I have been studying the
appearance of Arabic; it looks less strange with every new season. What I
see as distinctive in Farsi is consecutive letters, each with double dots;
I don't recall seeing those in Arabic.
