Thank you James.
But no matter what other encoding I choose, the arab font persists.
I have tried alle the possible encodings.
Before I installed the fonts the encoding was set to Auto, and it was 
still set to Auto after I installed the fonts.

If this is an encoding issue, it seems to lie deeper than what can be 
corrected via the GUI.

Why would installing fonts change KMail's encoding?
