Boy, does it ever! That could easily pass as Arabic to anyone who doesn't know better. And it's really very pretty (but then, I've always been a sucker for Arabic script ;). But how do you tell the difference between two p's and a t, since letters are connected? -- -=-Don<>-=- "I recommend we develop Polytheism so we can build: Elephant."
