Hi Dear Lior,

That was really nice tip. I done that. OOo detects my DB, but it simply  
does not work. I took a look at myspell-ar package and saw that's  
ar.dic file encoding is WIN-1256 and not UTF-8.

I converted my UTF-8 db to WIN-1256 and tested it again under OOo, but  
not working yet. Any idea?

If you like, I can upload files to take a look.
