For thus who are interested, please find below the Oracle response on this issue:
WebView uses the default JavaFX graphics pipeline, which is different than the one used for Swing/AWT. Support for right to left languages and complex characters is only planned for JDK 8 (JavaFX 8), but an early access implementation should soon be available as part of the JDK 8 weekly builds at http://jdk8.java.net/downloads.html
Whatever support for Arabic existing in JavaFX 2.2.x is not complete, and I would not recommend that you rely on it in "production" mode.

I have a requirement to support the Khmer script, used in Cambodia, in my application. This requirement may force me to choose another technology besides JavaFX, since it is a complex script that appears to be unsupported now. Can Oracle provide any updated information on how support for these scripts are coming, and an anticipated release date?
Try a jdk8 preview build and report back if it currently provides (or doesn't provide) the functionality you need:
If not, list what worked and what was missing or incorrect.
So, I'm currently running 1.8.0-ea-b73 and a very brief initial test shows support for Japanese characters. I have not yet attempted to get them displaying vertically.
EDIT: Sorry, just realized that wasn't a general request to report what works/doesn't with regard to this issue.

2.x definitely has problems with characters outside Unicode Plane 0. Those should be sorted out in current 8 builds.
