now I have a new thing
if I open a site that contains arabic, I can see the arabic font normally with no problem at all
also at the window toolbar, the window title is displayed in arabic font with no problem (as in kopete for example) but yet in the chat window itself, the arabic font dont appear !!!
so I guess this means tht I have the arabic font installed on my machine but yet can't be seen by the text editors or wht ??
