Is it possible to write and read Arabic in Open Office? I download the Dutch version of Open Office and its working great, but i cant figure out how to write in Arabic.
Do i need to download an update or a complete different version of OPen Office, or am i just overlooking something here :S
Already looked at the homepage of Open Office but couldnt find anything usefull.

Found it out myself :)
Just download a version of Open Office (doesnt need to be arabic, this is only for the gui you want). Then goto Tools->Preferences->Language Settings and enable CTL and choose a default language for CTL. Now set-up XP to support Arabic and install an arabic keyboard lay-out. strat Open Office, switch to the arabic keyboard lay-out and the cursor will jump to the right and you can start typing :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
