Please note that with different scripts, we have different font
classifications also. I'm not sure if the NFSS model is suitable for
scripts other than Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek (ok, there are some others
here, like Armenian). At least I should do some changes to the model to
adapt to Persian. And this situation, when you want different font
families for different scripts, is always the case with Persian. We don't
have anything named Times, or Helvetica, etc. We have our own families,
which usually doesn't fit in the model.
