> Kashida

Not to dwell on this, but the term 'kashida' is about the ugliest  
monstrosity to be forced upon the Arabic or Farsi language: it's not real  
Arabic, it's not real Farsi. 'Tatweel' is much preferred, and is a real  
word. I hope that we can collectively work to eradicate this contriviality  
 from the face of the earth...

Best wishes
