Hi,

On the mapnik map, the arabic letters are not connected. which is not
correct in arabic.
mapnik arabic:

I thought in an earlier thread
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2007-January/010816.html that
the problem was from the dejavu fonts but dejavu fonts render arabic
correctly.

Is it possible that this is happening because mapnik is rendering names
letter by letter and not taking the complete word?

Is it because of the process that converts osm -> postgis -> mapnik .?
