I'm an Arabic newbie too, and I am building up an Arabic course too. Till now
I've been feeling great with ArabTeX, which is an extension to the TeX-LaTeX
tipographical markup language.
in particular with this package (thanx Klaus) everything is possible: you may
mix up English and Arabic words on the same line, as well as creating
different columns so that you have the english text on one side and the
Arabic original copy on the other.
if you want an example, go look my course from Italian to Arabic @
of course LaTeX is totally different from Ms Word since in the former, you
write a simple text file with tags (like html pages), which will be compiled
by a program. later on it will create a wonderful .dvi or .ps or .pdf file
easily, without having to manual typeset the margins, the headings, the
font,... things which drive you crazy if you use Word.
for every help, I'm here and ready to help you.
