Arabic text typed in the command prompt window will be displayed as garbled.
Arabic is not supported in CMD prompt and will not be displayed correctly.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
The Arabic text will be displayed garbled. If you copy the text from the console to a Windows application like Notepad, the Arabic text will be displayed correctly.
This behavior is by design. Arabic and Hebrew (and for that matter Thai, Hindi, and other complex scripts) are not supported on Windows 2000 and Windopws XP console.
