Arabic characters and FOP

fop arabic
Hello all,

Can anyone provide some advice on Fop's handling of Arabic characters?

If you open this XML code in internet explorer it gives you a correctly
displayed Arabic word.
<value xml:lang="AR">&#1580;&#1583;&#1608;&#1604;</value>

If I insert the exact Arabic code in my XML and translate the XML into PDF
using FOP, the pdf displays the Arabic characters back to front.

If I then actually reverse the characters:
i.e. <value xml:lang="AR">&#1604;&#1608;&#1583;&#1580;</value>

And re-run the process, although now in the right order the joins between
the characters are lost.

I am using Traditional Arabic embedded within Fop.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
