XeLaTeX (in combination with Polyglossia) is not rendering the Awami
Nastaliq font properly. The letters in this font are being displayed
without being connected together. I haven't encountered this problem with
any other nastaleeq font. Nor have I seen this problem when using Awami in
word processors.

\newfontfamily\urdufont[Script=Arabic]{Awami Nastaliq}
\newfontfamily\altnast[Script=Arabic]{Jameel Noori Nastaleeq} % or any
other nastaliq font
عوامی نستعلیق\\
\altnast{جمیل نوری نستعلیق}

demo.pdf attached.
