encoding problem

Arabic Font only shows .NOTDEF glyph. Help needed.



I am developing a very basic Arabic font using my hand writing, using FontLab on Windows 7.

The problem is that I cant get the font to display in MS Word as well as InDesign.
No glyphs are shown. Only .NOTDEF shows for each character. I guess this has something to do with encoding, but cant figure out where to look for the solution.

Kindly help.

Thanks and regards.
