Assuming one can even display Arabic...  Even if you could grab a
friend to translate the code for you, you'd need to grab a program that
can display Arabic characters, which you'd have no idea where to start
looking unless you had a friend that can speak Arabic *and* is a computer
pro.  Ugh...

I have yet to see a program that can display all unicode characters.
Once that's in place (*if* they get it in place -- I don't think a
unicode-compliant program is required to be able to display all
characters, but just the portion of the unicode that's relevant for the
current locale) things would be much easier.
