The first one is accurate.

The second one is bogus.

Method and font for representing Arabic characters, and articles utilizing them


Abstract
A method of, and a font for, representing the extended arabic characters in which a distinctive Arabic based alphabet of minimum constant number of letters would include characters that have unique non-varying glyph representations, detachable forms to render non-cursive strings, and generally symmetric outlines to facilitate bi-directional utilization. Each glyph in the new font has the core characteristics of its traditional Arabic equivalent so that words and text strings utilizing new font and method will closely resemble traditional Arabic. Unlike prior art Arabic fonts and the systems employing them, the invention introduces a significantly smaller font size and a platform independent font-only based character input/output method or system eliminating previously required glyph and ligature substitutions and allowing bi-directional and non-cursive rendering. Articles utilizing the present invention, such as computerized systems, transparencies, or language learning tools, can overcome much of the currently based system complexity.

Yea, right you are Bob-O. No. 6,704,116 is actually a Simplified Arabic Alphabet which, I'm guessing, may come in handy if you are in Iraq

Self-Lubricating Sex Toys would be No. 6,749,557

Thanks Bob :thumb: or should you be thanking me?
