    An interesting site about the Persian Nastaliq style for the modified Arabic
    Dedicated to calligraphic and artistic designs, which shows how it inherited
    from the historic two artistic styles of Quran: Naskh and Taliq; the name itself
    should be written "Naskhtaliq", for the Persian family of Arabic letter designs.
