    Urdu & Microsoft Word Grrrrrrrrrr


    i have been studying urdu on my own for several years.
    i wanted to type in urdu on a word document.
    i can get the fonts and i can get the doc to go right to left, but either the text goes from left to right, or it is ok until i hit the space bar and then all kinds of nightmarish things happen.
    any advice/consolation/sympathy?
    much appreciated.
    p.s. i've done the thing with regional and language settings and "set language" in word.

    "you must install a arabic version of Office, or you must install the English version of Office with the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI)".

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311015

    I know of only 2 choices
    1. buy language pack from Microsoft or
    2. Buy Urdu Mahir which provides Urdu Nastaleeq script in Office XP or later. US$120/-

    Individual Microsoft Office Language Pack 2007 (Arabic that works with urdu) is available for $25 from http://buy20.trymicrosoftoffice.com/...&culture=en-US

    Note: Arabic has fewer letters than Urdu alphabet so it won't be a perfect solution. (urdu Mahir is a better but more expensive)

    so it will be a completely different keyboard than the one that starts like this
    ح ج ب ت ت
    i may well be back with stupid questions. it's easier to type here than it is in word!
