    Issues with Arab encoding

    Hi all!

    I'm currently doing a multilanguage site that needs to output among other's arab . The problem lies in that I'm unable to get a perfect output using UTF-8 encoding (some chars appear incorrectly on Firefox/Mozilla), any one knows of a possible solution? The web pages do validate as XHTML 1.0 and the headers explicitly state UTF-8 and arabic output.

    Thanks

    I might be able to do a test page and write here the output... will that be helpful?

    Hmm, ISO-8859-6 you might even need the 'rtl' although it should work with UTF-8 http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0600.pdf

    Yes, unicode has both ltr and rtl characters. (Give me one character that unicode doesn't cover. )
