Although this thread is going off-topic but I see it as something very 
important in arabizing CMS websites. My lack of time to check mambo source 
and understand this esoteric thing is definitely a shame ;)

With my humble PHP/MySQL skills, I made a page on the fly that contains one 
text box and a submit button to store the text in the database and redisplaly 
the text upon the button click. I opened the page using FireFox and typed 
arabic with different encoding each time. And as I expected changing the 
encoding will make the text garbage.

Ghoneim, Desokey! If you can make some lines of code that demonstrate it, it 
will be great! (Home Work ;))

Sherif! You are the person responsible of this magic. If we fail you have to 
explain it by example or ! #$%^
