I am having difficulty getting Arabic city names to display in AGSTextSymbol using ArcGIS 10.2, the names appears with each character as a square box, is there any reason why this shouldn't work? I have checked that my city names are correct and they can be displayed in a UITableView in Arabic without difficulty, but not on the map.
