In his Arabic calligraphy course (http://bit.ly/1NrOPJ1), Omar Uddin 
repeatedly uses the word "script" (see free preview of lesson 34, for 
example) to mean write.

This meaning is not covered on the Oxford Dictionary site or Wiktionary.

This usage doesn't seem very common, but it is in use. See:

Hand picked eggplant envelopes, that were written in calligraphy that I 
scripted by hand with an elaborate G embedded in white wax to seal the deal.

I SCRIPTED THE WORD "CATALUNYA" REPEATEDLY IN A CALLIGRAPHY PATTERN THAT 
GIVES THE TIE A SYMBOLIC, ABSTRACT EFFECT.
