    Hey,
    When I try to write something on my website in Arabic, this is what I get: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    I have tried this HTML code:
    <font color="white">عربي</font>
    But it's not showing on my website like that, it's just showing O's... :/
    Does anyone know why am I having this problem?
    Sorry for poor English
    Thanks

    Try this,

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-6">

    I added that meta and it doesn't work still
    This is what I get when typing in Arabic: عربÙ&#352;

    What I actually wrote: &#1593;&#1585;&#1576;&#1610;

    Are you trying to write ¨Arby¨ like the fast food restaurant or arabi? Try saving your file as UTF-16

    It is working when I make an empty HTML page with the Arabic letters in the font, but it's not working on my website's page, I think because my website's page has a lot of different CSS codes so it's confusing the HTML code, idk may be... :/

    Download the file and save the unmodified file as UTF-16 then upload back to your hosting server.

    Nooby answer: The Arabic font is not installed so the server doesn't know what to do with it. Your PC has the right font installed so it works there.
    So, you need to install it like you would on any other OS. Too lazy to find you a guide, sorry.

    Could be wrong here, but sounds logical to me.
    Hope this helps. :)

    I have tried to see if the Arabic font does work on other laptops, but it didn't work on my bro's laptop too :/

    The HTML file you created works on his laptop but when you upload it doesn't? If so: I stick with my nooby answer. If not I would think you saved it the wrong way and you might want to try the suggestion Laowai gave you. If not that either, please ignore. lol Most logical answer is still that the server doesn't "speak" Arab tho.

    EDIT: Try to write something in Arab only and upload that. If I am right it won't work. :)
