Just yesterday I placed text from a Word DOC (PC) into an InDesign CS2 (Mac) text box. Granted it was from Chinese, Korean and Spanish documents which are much different than Arabic. A few months ago I had a helluva time trying to import an Arabic Word DOC into InDesign. I don't think it ever worked for me since the text was right-to-left, it would always show up wrong when brought into a left-to-right environment. I ended up creating a PDF from Word and then saving the PDF as EPS. Arabic is a pain on a North American system!
