        My name is Michael Flowers, and I work for DIGITAL Equipment, a
subsidiary of Compaq Computer Corporation. I attended the Unicode
conference in San Jose, CA this past September, and I was wondering if I
could find out some information.

        A project that I am working on with the US Department of Defense, is
a dictionary lookup tool in foreign languages. The language they have
requested first is Arabic. I was wondering if you had any information on
converters of ISO-8859-6 Arabic text over to UTF-8 encoding? We are using
the CYBERBIT font from Bitstream, Inc. on our NT machine.

        In the future, we would like to convert other dictionaries in other
languages over to store in our database/lookup tool, hence the need for the
CYBERBIT font. We would like to be able to display the text from multiple
languages on one page. Thanks in advance for any information you can
