Why doesn't Microsoft Word support unicode???

OK, so all you PC users are looking at me strange. I'm talking about Office 2008. But I hope this post turns up in other searches on Word and unicode because I want Microsoft to receive the bad PR.

My complaint is that Word for mac can't handle Right to Left text. Astounding. The operating system supports it. OpenOffice can do it. So why would such a fundamental feature be missing? Is the computer simply not appropriate for semitic and arabic users??

Ok, enough ranting.
