comment What characters in a normal text document will screw up LaTeX?
For quotation marks, if they are already "smart" quotes, then using UTF8 (especially XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX) will work. If they are plain old " then you can fix this with the csquotes package. See fontspec with Helvetica breaks quotes for an example.

comment An arabic font problem
@Labaïr You need to compile this document with XeLaTeX, not pdfLaTeX (which is probably what you are doing.) Also, if your text is mainly in Arabic, and you can enter Arabic easily with your keyboard, you should probably just be using polyglossia instead of ArabXeTeX. See the accepted answer to this question: Typesetting a document using Arabic script.

comment multline and mdframed bug
I think bugs are best reported directly to the author of the package. See What is the best way to announce a bug in TeX-related software?

comment Displaying selected bibliographic items in the body of the text
I've edited your question to reflect the fact that you're using biblatex-mla. This was really important information that you should have mentioned in your question originally. (As a result, two people gave good answers that don't actually work for you.)

comment Displaying selected bibliographic items in the body of the text
Unfortunately biblatex-mla doesn't provide a \fullcite command (not surprising, since it's heavily footnote driven). So this solution as it stands won't work with style=mla.
