ISSUE-288: Letterform differences

Letterform differences

Raised by:
Richard Ishida
Opened on:
Typography Background


"For example, the Arabic script is shared by Persian and Urdu and Cyrillic is used with many languages, not just Russian."

I think this doesn't quite make the point. I would suggest the following replacement:
"For example, the Arabic script when used for Persian and Urdu exhibits significant and systematic differences in letterforms, as does Cyrillic when used with languages such as Serbian and Russian."
