    I have a similar kind of thing where I want to store data in various languages and I had tried posting this question in many forums but could not find anything helpful.
    and so we have decided to remove the support for multiple languages from our application.
    If u find a solution for this please post it here
    or mail me at:

    Thankyou,

    SELECT * FROM table1 WHERE something="";

    the WHERE contains Arabic word and it would work fine with me!

    so you just type normal mysql queries whatever, and use arabic words where needed? and it works fine?
