Java AWT Right to left (arabic) support

Hi, I'm trying to get a basic AWT app working that supports right to left text entry.
This is easy enough to to in Swing with .setOrientation(Orientation.RIGHT_TO_LEFT), but
when trying the same with AWT, nothing seems to happen.

I'm not too sure why this is happening and I know I shound't be using AWT , but unfortunately our PDA
app is constrained to use this until we find another solution. Anyone got any ideas how I can get awt components
like TextArea to support RTF?


It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
