Hello,

I do not know whether the following will work in your case with GLI, but I
have found it to work with various applications - including Java-based
ones. As GLI is made with Java, this method may be worth trying. (Perhaps
you have already tried this.)

SOLUTION:
Do you have a text-editor where you are able to type in Arabic? If the
characters you typed are encoded in UTF-8 then I think it may be possible
for you to copy the text that you've typed in your Arabic-enabled
text-editor and paste it into the text-fields of GLI.

To ensure that there is some feasibility to my suggestion, I just now
tried out adding some Bengali characters as dc.Title metadata to a demo
collection. I copied these characters from a demo collection which I had
earlier tested and pasted them into the dc.Title metadata field of the
Enrich tab of GLI (the Greenstone Librarian Interface application).
See the screenshots attached:
Although the Bengali characters appear as blocks in GLI for me
(Screenshot-GLI.png), when I build the collection and view it in the
browser, the characters appear fine (Screenshot-browser.png).
It may therefore also work with the Arabic metadata you wish to add. I
think however that you should use a UTF-8 font.

Regards,
Anupama
