    Re: unicode support

    And what, exactly, happens "nokia sdk and movile device both"?

    If what happens is that you see empty boxes/squares instead of the characters you expected, then it simply means that the phone on the PC (with the SDK) and/or on the phone you do not have font files installed or as default fonts to display those characters. For that, there's no patch, but you should install the appropriate font, or get a phone firmware language version which comes with an appropriate font.

    If that's not your problem, then please explain what "facing problem" means.

    Well, for one... most of the built-in preinstalled fonts are fixed size, so you cannot change the size freely.

    Secondly, if you want to use Arabic from Java, then the default system font must support Arabic.

    You might also want to tell which SDK (exact name and version) you are using, and which phone models you've tried it on, and whether they have Arabic language support built-in or not.

    If I remember correctly, I do not think Nokia SDKs support Arabic (Chinese and Thai are supported at least on certain S60 SDKs though).... You need to use Sun WTK

    On the real devices you can have problems as well, if the phone language pack does not support arabic glyphs (like petrib mentioned)
