Arabic letters not joining photoshop

Ok, as far as i know Arabic letters should always be joined and for the site i'm working on, the letters definitely need to be joining. My Arabic HTML text is displaying the joint letters perfectly, but when I copy my Arabic text into Photoshop the Arabic letters are seperated.

I am copying the Arabic text from a spreadsheet of Arabic words my company got translated - the characters in the spreadsheet are also not joined.

I'm not sure if a special Arabic font is needed in order for photoshop to display these characters as joined or if i need Photoshop ME, but my normal version of photoshop seems to display the arabic characters fine. (JUST NOT JOINING THEM)

So just to recap my query is:
- Can photoshop display joined Arabic characters and if so how?
- Is an external (purchased) font needed for this?
- Is the only way around this using Photoshop ME

Thanks guys, any help here would be appreciated.

Sounds to me like your text tracking is just too wide. Shrink it up a bit in the characters palette and your letters should join up.
