HIM Arabic plugin is on its way.
The code is available from my svn repository
svn co http://home.foolab.org/svn/projects/him-arabic/trunk/ him-arabic
* The code is UGLY. A lot of the functionality is still missing.
* No packages yet. I'll create them but my cold doesn't help much :-)
* The above screenshot is for scratchbox not for the actual device. I didn't try yet to run it on the device.
* You will also need an Arabic font. I packaged one here: ftp://foolab.org/pub/apt/pool/arabic/t/ttf-kacst/ttf-arabic-kacstbook_1…
I know there's one provided by the browser team. It was me who did the packaging for it but I'll be providing multiple fonts soon so ttf-arabic is now a virtual package.
