First of all, it doesn't have "the generic shape of the main letters,"
since it uses the same glyph for every assigned character in the
Arabic block. This is *not* a fallback pan-Unicode font. It has the
sole purpose of letting the user know that they need a font covering a
particular Unicode block in order to see certain text which cannot
currently be displayed. Period. That's it. It is not intended in
any way to provide legible text in *any* script.
