    I am a novice, but with some experience in Word, plus had help from a professional. So we downloaded and intalled the keyboard and complex script and right-to-left languages as described here http://zsigri.tripod.com/fontboard/arablpk.html. We restarted when promted. Opened a Word doc, set the language and font to Arabic transparent, but it keeps switching back to Arial or New Times Roman as soon as I type. I can open Arabic documents without any problem and I can cut & paste and it all appears as it should on the page, justified to the right, etc.

    Can someone please help? Thanks a million!

    Oh - and I installed it on my other computer which also runs XP, but it's Office 2007. It didn't have any problems.

    Thanks.
