Encoding Apr 27, 2005

I think it might be due oto encoding.

To solve this problem, go to View -> Encoding in your browser and change it to Arabic (Windows)

I hope this could help

There was a problem, but it has been resolved. Apr 27, 2005

Yesterday, there was an encoding problem that affected all non-Western European scripts. One had to change the encoding with every page turn. It was frustrating to everybody.

The problem has been corrected. If your encoding is set to Arabic (Windows) and you are able to display Arabic on other websites, you should be able to display it on as well.
