Comment (by sigma4111):

 Hi. Thank you for your kind replay & attantion !

 I do not know name of font currently used by Tor to display contents of
 this site. I attached screenshot. See it to verify it's type.

 I not sure how you like me to help ? I understood - please correct to me -
 Tor not allowed to use system fonts so as to protect from fingerprint.
 This mean - please correct to me - it "Arial" is used from within Tor (by
 being one of Tor owen built-in set of fonts) then no risk, but if used
 from outside Tor (from system fonts) it will be risky. For that, we need
 to add "Arial" to Tor owen built-in set of fonts to be one of them by
 default ? Is this what you plan to do, or something else ?

 I can supply you by files for Arabic fonts (like Arial), if you like ...

 Currently, display of this site is really uggly.
