Now, as a person who doesn't know Arabic (yet), but loves experiences,
the first thing I did was to import Sindbad and to install it on
Windows NT with Communicator. 

Everything standard Western, francized whenever possible.

Does anybody has some positive experience with Sindbad in such
a context?

The installation of the plug-in corrupted my Netscape and I had to 
reload it (which was difficult because I had no more Netscape to
import it from their download sites...). The Communicator reported 
initialisation errors.

Could I do something wrong? (I could, with my fat fingers...), but
