    Tab controls in Delphi don't support Unicode...

    See http://www.unicode.org/ for generic unicode information.
    http://tnt.ccci.org/delphi_unicode_controls/ contains controls that are unicode compatible so these should work, although not every control might be available.
    http://unicode.soft-gems.net/ has more about Delphi and Unicode.

    omarmf,
    go to Start->Setting->Control Panel and then "Regional & Language options"
    in "Regional & Language options" window goto "Languages" tab and select "install files for complex script and right to left languages..." to enable that and then apply , in this case you need windows installation disk to apply the changes
    after that you can easily use Arabic Font

    Regards
    Amir
