When printing Arabic text, if you haven't installed Arabic text support, then although what is produced will look like Arabic, it will not pass muster with the guys over in Dammam, SA.

Indeed, they will complain that the text is coming out back-to-front.

(My machine has right-to-left support enabled. The machine producing the PDFs did not.)

I installed Arabic on my Win2k machine at work, to investigate a problem in EndNote for a user. And then never got it to switch back completely - odd bits like the Windows clock would display the date as Arabic, for example.
