{{User iso15924|Arab|2}}
Arab-2
ع
This user has an intermediate understanding of the Arabic script.

Usage

{{User iso15924|<code>|<level>}}

Replace <code> with the four-letter ISO 15924 code and <level> with the corresponding knowledge level.

Note that this template is for demonstrating your knowledge of a script and not languages written in that script. For instance {{User iso15924|Spanish}} or {{User iso15924|de}} are both incorrect, and not just because a four-letter code has not been used. Spanish and German are both written in Latin script, so the ability to read both languages would be covered by a single template of {{User iso15924|Latn}}. Conversely a Serbian speaker might have both {{User iso15924|Cyrl}} and {{User iso15924|Latn}} to show that they can read the one language written in both Cyrillic and Latin script.

ISO updates

The ISO 15924 list of script codes is updated regularly, usually at least once a year. The current list is complete as of 15 November 2014, and defines 175 codes (code, number, script name).

Note: when resolving red links or wrong links, edit {{ISO 15924/wp-name}} or {{ISO 15924/wp-category}}. That is where the connection between ISO code and Wikipedia names is made.
