I do not know how complete the support is, but this is copied from 
3.4.2, which uses tcl/tk 8.6.
 >>> t = "الحركات"
 >>> for c in t: print(c)  # Prints rightmost char above first
ا
ل
ح
ر
ك
ا
ت

The following StackOverflow question and response indicate that there 
may b more issue, but it was asked before tcl/tk 8.6 was available, so 
the answer may be partially obsolete.
