Anybody knows how to Create PDF with Arabic words?

Seems FOP-0.20.5 cannot handle Arabic glyphs/ligature properly. It can only display the Arabic characters but the rules to ligate them together cannot be displayed.

Any other software or tool that we can use for this kind of task? :roll:

Anyone know how to create pdf files with Arabic in them?

It seems to be a task more difficult than it should be.

Hi,

In principal it should be possible with DocBook XML and DocBook XSL. Once you created your FO document you need a commercial XSL-FO processor such as XEP or XSL Formatter to convert your FO document into a PDF document.

The current version of FOP (open source) unfortunately does not support Hebrew or other languages that change direction.

Darya
