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that would allow FOP to work with Arabic, but was unable to find his post, though I found a reference to it, with a no longer valid hyper-link.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?
