    I was wondering if anyone has tried adding additional font files to webOS so that they can read webpages that have languages other than english. I would like to read webpages that have arabic and farsi font. So I was wondering if I just add the font to the fonts folder would that do the trick or would I also need to direct the browser to the fonts. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Just to get another chance for people to discuss this.

    I was wondering if there was anyway to get applications such as facebook, web, and twitter to recognize other languages by importing the fonts of those languages. I copy and pasted a font (Persian) into the fonts folder on my pre but i still can not get the text in that language to show up. Does anyone have any ideas that might help?

    do a search on how to get Hebrew fonts for the WebOS. Follow the directions to install Hebrew font, just substitute the font file with Arabic or Farsi. I believe that the soft keyboard that is available for Hebrew, would work just find with other right to left fonts..

    Yeah I am also looking for a way to display other languages (utf-8). If any one finds a way let us know, it would be a great feature (I am on a touchpad).
