Hi Fred, Hi Musa,
PLease find attached a sample file where Arabic and Persian are
written with XeTeX and ConTeXt (XeConTeXt...).
I have tried a few ConteXt features which work fine with Arabic and
Persian script, and I think almost everything can be adapted once one
has in mind that "right" becomes "left" and vice versa...
One more thing: I wish I could use properly, that is in the elegant
ConTeXt-ish way, such commands like \setupbodyfont[...] and other
font related things. But at this point I am not good at handling
Best regards: OK
