    To support a project which has an 'announcement-only' mailing list at -

    I've set myself the task of learning all I can about creating webpages that
    use English-character HTML to display Arabic text. A colleague suggested
    this could be achieved using 'Unicode' to represent Arabic characters.

    I'm aware there are many Arabic text fonts, and that some Windows operating
    system keyboards can be set to type in Arabic (mine can't, as Windows-98
    appears not to have this facility) but I guess I need to start somewhere.

    Any pointers as to where I might look next would be greatly appreciated.
    Feel welcome to contact me off-list if preferred. I've placed my full
    contact details below.
