    WebOS can't read Arabic web sites and emails and it shown Arabic text in web sites and emails as BLANK! Seems hidden from showen up!

    I tried the replacing fonts trick but it dosnt work for Arabic and works for Hebrew!

    I hope any developer here can help me out or at least give me more info about why WebOS cants showen Arabic Fonts and if there is a solution for that or not?

    I'm going to Donate about $25 USD for a solution that enables WebOS to read Arabic Websites and emails.
    I hope other members who needs their Palm Pre's to Read Arabic to input in this thread how much they willing to Donate for a solution to encourage Developers here.

    i dont know anything in linux, they said that WebOS like Linux!!
    and if a font not appears so what that means? WebOS support that font but in Font configuration it hidden it? where can i find the fonts configuration file using internalz?

    I love your persistence. You have been fighting to get Arabic font support for a while now. I know because way back when I was trying to get Arabic or Farsi font support, you were right there with me, but after no one seemed to care or have a solution I gave up.

    If someone can get it to work and its not simply enabling a font file I would be willing to donate $5 to the project. I do think this needs to be taken care of by Palm.

    thanks for your input ...
    even i got no solution i will definitely stick with my Palm Pre

    but i wonder if there is a solution that enables Arabic to be showen in WebOS. and if any developer can confirm if WebOS cant show Arabic fonts ever so i stop asking and thinking about if it possible

    I do love my Pre and this forum

    I do not think they include Arabic fonts in webOS. Also, the fonts are on a system partition, which means you may not be able to use it in the future (if a webOS update is barely small enough to fit in that space for example).

    thnx for reply ...

    i transfered an Arabic font to the fonts directory of WebOS, but with no luck!
    but transfereing a Hebrew font to the same directory enables hebrew on WebOS! without Hebrew font the WebOS dsiplays Hebrew as BLANK too ...

    i think there is somthing disabled in WebOS for Arabic fonts to not showen even after installing an Arabic font and thats what i cant find in WebOS system files and for that im asking for help from a developer to check the system files that handles fonts and know if this can be edited >>>
