Looking at the source code for the examples doesn't shed any light on the problem. If you have seen this done please comment with an example.

Arabic Text as a Flex Button label?
The Text Layout Framework that Adobe has made available on the labs site is a very cool display of the capabilities of Flash Player. However, what seems to be suspiciously missing from all the demos is an example of how to use Arabic text on a button. Just putting arabic in the MXML as the button label obviously doesn't work (otherwise... I wouldn't be posting this). What happens is the letters look like they are in reverse order. I can't read Arabic, but I don't think that would make much sense. Especially since none of the letters get connected with the appropriate ligatures.
