Hi, Does anyone know, what fonts do I have to install to display all arabic charcaters in my html page. I am able to display all arabic characters which are supported by Arial. But I have one special character with three dots, unicode in hexadecimal is 061E. It is not getting displayed! Any special font I have to install for this? Thanks in advance for your help.
You started out asking about fonts, but now you're discussing charsets. But you didn't actually say what the problem was, except that one character was "not getting displayed". I think we need more information about what exactly that means.

I have to reply to the post when someone ask more info..

This is what exactly my problem is.. I am trying to display unicode character 061E(in hexa) in html. It should suppose to display special symbol. But It is not getting displayed. It displays empty space instead of that symbol.
Just write small html and just display above unicode character and check whether you get three dot symbols are not. I am not getting in my machine.. I am just checking whether I need to have any additional font installation in my machine to display that character?
Thanks Eric. I already went through that page. In that page if you search for character 061E description(name) has mentioned as 'ARABIC TRIPLE DOT PUNCTUATION MARK', this is the chacracte i wanted to display. When I load that page, instead of getting that triple dot punctuation mark, I see empty square box. My browser is not displaying it.

Yes, that definitely means you have a font problem and not a charset or encoding problem. I'm using Firefox and I get a question mark, but I do get the square box in Internet Explorer. Even though I'm using a font that can render common Arabic characters like alif and shin. And even Lucida Sans Unicode can't render that character.
So after all those responses, all I can tell you is that you did ask the right question originally. But sorry, I don't have an answer for it.
