Yes, Microsoft Word (Windows only) provides this support.
InDesign ME offers this support (both platforms); maybe future
versions of InDesign might also natively support right-to-left.

I am sure that this question has been "kneaded" 100 times, on this list,
but I've missed it...
Is there a S/W application or DTP S/W that is used for
Arabic, Farsi (left to right) languages in popular use, today?

FrameMaker does NOT support right-to-left languages
such as Hebrew, Arabic, and Farsi. You can type the
Unicode characters, but they will appear left-to-right
and the various language rules (context sensitive rules,
ligatures, etc.) are not obeyed.
