When displaying fields containing mixed latin and arabic characters, the formatting get messy. The reader cannot tell where the sentence starts and where it ends. Arabic words get wrapped in a peculiar way around Latin words (and/or vice versa).

I would assume this is the case for Hebrew characters as well since it is also a Right To Left language.

This is a well known issue:
