Books for the iPad with non-English / non-standard Characters
I am wondering if the iPad supports books with non-English / non-Standard characters?
Specifically: I am a self-publisher and my books, although the main text is English, contain Arabic, Persian and Urdu quotations and also I make heavy use of non-standard characters based on transliteration standards for non-English words.
I know PDF will work straight out of the box, however what about designing an app to display such works?
Are there people out there who can/would be able to design an application for me that would enable a "quick" conversion of my documents (done in MS Word 2007) into an eBook for the iPad?
