Arabic, Hebrew fonts don't appear

Using Express demo version with a G4 MDD Mac desktop and Tiger's latest version. When switching language to Arabic or Hebrew, the direction changes OK but the Arabic or Hebrew fonts don't appear. Typing continues to produce Roman fonts.
This may be a Mac problem but any assistance from this forum before I enter the mac support maze will be greatly appreciated.

Arabic, Hebrew keyboard layouts

Have you added Arabic and Hebrew keyboard layouts from NWE's Preferences=>Languages? You can also set your preferred font for the language.
Once you have done so, select the appropriate keyboard layout for the language.

Thanks, Hamid, for your reply. Setting the prefs in NWE doesn't help by itself. but I did find, in Tiger System Prefs, under "International", a window called "Input Menu". This can be set to Arabic. Now I see my Arabic fonts in NWE. I guess both need to be checked.

Shukraan jazeelan!

If you are using a demo of Express, you may as well try the public beta of Nisus Writer Pro which has many more features. It will outlive the demo of Express:
