Yes FOP supports unicode, but it seems that it dont support right to left scripts or right
to left 
layout. it desplays arabic or hebrew glyphs in reverse order (in generated PDFs) and arabic
or hebrew words in reverse order (in AWT view).

I can confirm it definitely. You do have to ensure everything in your 
pipeline that might interpret streams is marked for UTF-8, but it works fine.

The biggest problem you will run into is font support.
