neither bidi nor shaping. I'm working on implementing writing-mode and bidi in
fop1.0 and it looks pretty feasible with new fop's design. But don't ask me
when fop1.0 is going to be ready :)
And those #### glyphs actualy have nothing to do with arabic or bidi - # is
just "missing character glyph" in fop, that means there is no glyph for a
character in a font in use. You have to add arabic-aware font to fop (see
http://xml.apache.org/fop/fonts.html) and don't forget to use font-family
property in your stylesheet.
