regarding handling of Arabic text and other right to left text in

Flash Player 9 doesn't support bi-di languages (Arabic is actually
bidirectional, not just right to left). Flash Player 10, which I believe is
in Beta now, will have support for bi-di languages like Arabic, Farsi, and
Hebrew.

It is possible to do bi-di in FP 9, but it takes a lot of code and
ingenuity. I know an Israeli woman in Dublin who has done it--she's on this
list, and Flash_Tiger, so she may chime in. I don't know the details, but I
know it involved several individual text fields. Also, I think it was output
only, not input.

Interestingly, there is a company in the UK that has written a bi-di input
system in Director. I haven't seen their code, but I know one of the
programmers, and he's a whiz. 

It's not easy, but it can be done. Or, depending on your time frame, it
might be worth writing to the FP10 beta. It might be out of beta by the time
you're done--I've heard October.

Cordially,

Kerry Thompson
