Ok, today I came up with the following solution: Folks, tell me what you think of that one:

Code:
'Arabic under LibertyBasic 403
'That will run ok on non-Arabic set computers.
'
                ' LB Yahoo 30576  "United States of America"  underscore
                ' LB403 - ua 2006-10-08
'
' Install under WINDOWS/FONTS the free characterset :
' Arabic Web  --  arabweb1.ttf
' from:
' http://www.isc.com.au
' or from my site (faster but not straight) :
' http://quantum-chemistry-history.com/arabic/arabweb1.zip
'
'

usa$=" C ngL  DE  "

WindowWidth=640
WindowHeight=480

'places your usa text
statictext #main.handle, usa$, 10, 10, 600, 40

'Places some other text with the default font
statictext #main.handle1, "I feel fine today", 10, 50,600, 20

'Opens the window
open "example" for window as #main

'Changes the font for the USA text
print #main.handle, "!font Arabic_Web 20 bold"

print #main, "trapclose [quit]"
wait

[quit]
close #main
end

Sorry for a slow reply.

Are you trying to make this work for Windows 9x/ME? I'm sure most people don't want to install a new font that they won't use. Windows NT derivitives support Unicode directly and I personally prefer that.
