How can I use eastern fonts in my delphi application? (e.g. Farsi fonts)

I want to use Persian (Farsi) and English textes in my delphi application (in an English Windows OS) and want to show, type and print these textes via my application. I have just some Farsi fonts. Can somebody tell me how can I do this so that I have the ability of selecting these two languages in my application at design time and runtime. Please notice I don't want do use a Windows OS with farsi support and I want to have this ability just in my application.
If there is some codes or dll's or a link which can help me, please be so kind and notify me.
Thank you for your help.

Widestring can hold unicode characters, but non of the VCL components support direct unicode. You need a unicode set of components. Something like http://www.delphi-unicode.net/ might help

I want to know how to support double-byte characters (unicode) in my delph app also.  maybe Widestring has the answer hidden somewhere, but I don't know.
