This is my first forum in this site.
I have few doubts regarding this software.Please help me to clear it.

Now i am using Mapinfo and Mapxtreme for developing maps in web application(Visual studio) and backend is SQL 2008.Now we want one more software for developing maps with our own data and need to develop web application in visual studio using ESRI.

1.For that which software we need to buy from ESRI?What is the cost for this?What all features this offering?
2.whether Arabic fonts in map will support or not?
3.What all server spcification will support this ESRI?

Can u give me the information regarding this?
