Adobe Flash Player 9 does not yet support right-to-left scripts such as Arabic or Hebrew, sorry. I know that this has been desired by the Player team for the last few versions, but the wildcard has been tapping into the (optional) system-level routines for right-to-left text... gracefully degrading on systems which don't support RTL is one tricky problem. Handling ligatures and bound character pairs similarly across OS has been another barrier. I haven't heard any announcements about feature sets for future versions of the Player. I've heard execs say RTL scripts are very desired, but I don't know when we'll be able to deliver. That said, here are some recent links to places where people are simulating this OS-level support during the creation process: http://weblogs.macromedia.com/jd/archives/2006/02/flaraby2_beta.cfm http://weblogs.macromedia.com/jd/archives/2005/09/flashrtl_projec.cfm jd -- John Dowdell .
