Hey Omid, Tony suggested to use camino for foreign typo, and it's working ! If you feel like it, download the browser here, and give us a couple of lessons on the alphabet, or anything you want.

That'd be great but does IPB support right-to-left languages? I have the ability to type in Farsi, though to be honest, I'm not that great at writing - we could take a phonetic approach...

Yes, I tried it. And it's pretty hallucinating, you'll see !

Are you able to teach the alphabet ? Then we could do the phonetic for conversation.

Mmm.. my grasp of the alphabet is limited. I can read it, but it's hard for me to know which letters to use for spelling. The trouble is that for every sound, there are several letters representing them.



What's amusing is this Czech site (http://www.sweb.cz/ls78/farsi.htm) does one of the best breakdowns of Farsi I've ever seen. Probably because almost all the same sounds are used in both languages, and surprisingly, they share a lot of similarities. Probably one of the things that made it easy-ish for me to learn.
