    I will try to help, but I need to know what version of AW you are
    using (if it is not the latest stable release then please update first)
    and on what operating system.

    No, AW does not rely on external library for this, it has FriBidi build
    in. (This is going to change, since the changes we needed in
    FriBidi are now in the official release.)
