Help Arabic support in kindle 3

Hi,

I've got a book in Arabic language and I wanted to convert it to .prc to read it on my kindle 3 (version 3.0.2). I converted the book using mobipocket creator.

When I transferred the .prc file to my kindle and tried to read it; the characters were strange and not the Arabic language; like this:



I also tried converting the pdf book with Calibre but still the same problem; my kindle doesn't recognize the Arabic language.

Is the problem from the conversion, from my kindle itself or I have to install a new font in my kindle? And how do I do this?

Thanks in advance

The Kindle does not support Arabic without a hack.

Use PDF. I don't think there's a hack to add Arabic support.
