    I know that lines of Arabic script are read from right to left and publications written in Arabic are read from the "back" cover to the "front" cover (from a westerner's perspective). What about pages of script? Are they read from top to bottom like in the west or are they read from bottom to top?

    Arabic, like Hebrew, is written -and read- from right to left, top to bottom.
