Unicode but I would hold my breath for RTL at the moment.

Subject: RE: FrameMaker & RTL languages

Getting Frame to work in Arabic involves hacking the registry, among other
things.  I don't know the specific details that my translators used, but it
was fairly complex and troublesome.  They use it for some small (1-2 pages)
items that we need done, but for anything longer they convert it to InDesign
after translation and do the DTP there.

Perhaps we can hope for Unicode and RTL support in FrameMaker 8!

Subject: FrameMaker & RTL languages

Hi all,
We are currently advising a client on which package to use for their
technical documentation. 
However, one of the requirements of this customer is translation into RLT
languages. 
FrameMaker does not support these languages, but I remember someone
mentioning in this list that FrameMaker can be "customized" to support
Arabic. 
Does anyone have experience with this, and does it work well?

Any hints will be greatly appreciated.
