We developed a site that uses unicode for Arabic/Persian in XML format
(http://www.pardaily.com). The only problem we had was with the supporting
platforms. For all practical reasons, IE5+ is the only platform that we
could find displaying the R2L portion properly.  Our client uses Word2000 as
an editor for Arabic/Persian news files.
