The article on Arabic text by Tayli and Al-Salamah has an interesting solution for a PC with "bilingual capabilities." By making modifications to ROM-BIOS, the authors are able to write the screen outputs as equivalent Arabic, though there is no mystery in the translation (which is all provided by embedded special vocabularies and words for special software packages such as spreadsheets).
Functions handled by the ROM-BIOS include video services, memory reporting, disk drive and printer handling, and bootstrap activities.
