I am using Indesign CS3, when I am importing Arabic files I found the letters are scattered. Any idea how to deal with that?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry about the late reply, but maybe somebody will find this helpful:

"Where+When working with Arabic, always do:
1. Try importing instead of Copy+Pasting.
2. Make sure that the Text:
• goes right to left in direction (Justification is another issue).
• is Arabic-Spaced not Latin-Spaced, and
3 the Language of paragraphs is also Arabic."
