Technical data about your PC's OS and which browser(s) you use, please Jul 17, 2004


If you would kindly provide some technical data about your PC's OS and which browser(s) you use, I may be able to advise you.

In most cases -- absent clarifictaion from you abou what's on your system -- the matter involves setting and enabling Arabic language support (and associated RTL Arabic fonts that usually link automatically whenever the Arabic language option is invoked) in your PC's OS and/or your browsers.

FWIW, < MSIE > and < > provide pretty reliable and robust Arabic support; < > is so-so by comparison.
You can forget AOL pretty much because of its clunkiness and instability in handling RTL scripts such as Arabic, Kurdish and Farsi. Netscape is very unstable and requires you you to go through a drill of selecting Arabic encoding each time you find and open an Arabic page.


Khair, in sha' Allah.
