Arabic support is very important for us.
I looked in nabble for Sebastian's post that would allow FOP to work with 
Arabic, but was unable to find his post, though I found a reference to it, with 
a no longer valid hyper-link.
Do you have a valid link to a patch and/or instructions that will enable FOP to 
work with Arabic?

Hi,

   There was some change made by sebastian in FOP for arabic characters and
it worked for us, I used it around 2006 - 07 and it is still workin
properly.. 

I beleive the post should be in nabble only.

Regards,
Prakash Sen.
