    Arabic Unicode

    Hi All,

    I would like to localise some apps to use arabic aswell as
    western languages. Parsing western ASCII text is fairly easy but how would I deal with unicode arabic ? I have had some experience in parsing japanese pdf files by reading ASCII strings two chars at a time and writing them to UTF-8 ASCII text files and viewing them in a japenese font set.

    Is it similar for arabic ?

    It should be exactly the same. Arabic characters are simply different unicode values to Japanese characters.
