I didn't understand that statement the first time round, and still am
not sure I understand it. (The antecedent for the last occurrence of
"it" isn't clear to me, so I'm having difficulty interpreting the whole
thing, apart from the matter of whether the point makes sense.)
"Treating Arabic as a script variant of Latin is a big win for many of
the users of the script, since they would have a hard time deciphering
the bizarre (to them) script variant but have no problem reading texts
originally written in it in different fonts."
The only part of that that is questionable is what is considered a
script or script variant. But perhaps I really missed the point...
