Last night I ripped my new Shlomo Artzi (Shfuim – not even in iTunes yet) CD in my Mac mini. It retrieved the track and album names from the series of tubes called the Internet just fine, in Hebrew.
I uploaded it to my iDisk, downloaded at work (Windows XP PC), and now track names, album names and file names are reversed (they read from left to right which makes no sense). Arabic and other right-to-left languages surely have the same problem. Any ideas?

[Update 2 5/22/2007] Ok, problem solved. Windows XP does not support Right to Left languages unless you explicitly install it. This was suggested to me through the Apple Support discussion linked above. I wonder if Vista does any better, but I’m not curious enough to install it on my Vista box, which I avoid as hard as I can. Thanks a lot to philboooo for the suggestion.
