Greek and Coptic are supported on K3 (Greek even on K2/DX). See sample of Coptic. Arabic is not, and I don't think a font hack would help (layout engine needs to handle BiDi and complex script for that).

If you are having problems converting Coptic and Greek, check the encoding of the source text. You might need to get it into UTF-8 (maybe with BOM) before it will work.

Sorry, I lapsed into acronym-ese.

BOM is 'byte-order mark' - it is a small sequence of bytes at the start of a Unicode text file to identify the specific Unicode encoding used (UTF-8, UTF-16 big endian, UTF-16 little endian, UTF-32). Most text editors will let you specify whether or not to include this when you save the file. In theory, programs that accept Unicode text file input should read these bytes and use them to interpret the rest of the content properly. But some will assume it is a particular encoding and get confused by BOMs. So it may take some experimentation to discover what works.

My Kindle 3 support Arabic PDFs somwhat OK, except for long books or articles. MOBI format doesn't support Arabic at all since it display the letters as squares and questions marks. I have two days left to return my Kindle if it doesn't support Arabic at all.

Arabic PDF books are supported by all E-Readers and all devices including mobile phones.
PDF is "Portable Document Format" and it's a graphic or text can be read by PDF reader engine included on the system.

So, if we speak about language support we speak about pure text files of this language.

Thanks Meem.

I didn't explain my issue very well and I'm sorry for that.

I'm aware that all E-Readers support PDF files and there is no issue displaying PDFs files in any language since they are pure picture scans of the documents (to make it simple )

My issue come when I convert Arabic books in ePub format to PDF through Calibre.

Some pages or paragraphs are totally missing, so I was confused why is that happening in my kindle where the converted PDF file is okay and all the pages are there!
