Arabic to English
Sep 26, 2003

I cannot view Arabic script on KudoZ posts on my Mac. I am using Internet Explorer 5.0 on Mac OS 9.2. I have tried changing the preferred languages, but Arabic is not an option on the menu. I have also tried changing the character set, but Arabic is not available there, either. I have also tried changing various fonts in the Web browser with no luck. I do have the language kits installed and can read and write Arabic in other applications. Please advise and thanks.

The browser is free and you can download mac version 6.03 which is Unicode based and should resolve all your problems.
I work in Opera under Mac OS X and it works well. Russian is a bit exotic languase for web browsers and I guess Arabic is too.

Sometime in the future veryone shall use Unicode
