Okay, so it looks like it works in Netscape, so I guess I'll use it. I was unaware that Netscape had a new version out (7.0). Didn't 6.0 come out not that long ago?

Well, the LJ site stuff looks fine (I can see the correct letters to select Hebrew as my default language on LJ), but journals that are apparently in Hebrew don't have the right characters (some of them look like Cyrillic characters). Any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated.
Unless that word isn't what I thought it was, the tav seems to be missing, but otherwise, I see the subject line alright. As to your other issues, DD may be able to help since he's dealt with Hebrew stuff on his mac, so you may want to try sending him email about it.

And here I thought the subject line was ????... I suppose I'll look from the home computer to see what I can see...

Yeah, that was a sloppy copy-and-paste job.
I'll talk to DD. Thanks.

Okay, well, I don't know if some people just do it a different way, or if the people whose LJs I was looking at actually were writing in Russian, because I can see Hebrew in some people's journals.
i had initially just did a search for people in Israel, and they all either looked Cyrillic or were in English. But I can see the stuff in israeli
, so I guess I'm fine. Weird.

Netscape 6 - icky icky ick
Yes, Netscape 6 wasn't that old - it was quickly replaced because it was such a shoddy product. Some of the engineers from Netscape, when in a meeting with our CIO here, advised us to upgrade to 7 because Netscape 6 was "a piece of crap." I was shocked to hear that the software engineers would say such a thing about a product for which they were responsible.
BTW, your fonts are displaying fine here on my PC running IE 6.

If it doesn't get sorted out here, you might try opening a support request, and get more eyes on it.

FWIW, I can see the letters in OmniWeb v4.1.1. Apparently they're encoded (along with everything else on this page) in UTF-8 Unicode... yaaay. (This is the same standard defined by that PDF I shared with you a while back.)
It isn't just platform & browser, of course... the machine needs a Hebrew font installed as well. It'd see gobbledeygook if I had been paying attention during my Jaguar install a couple of weeks ago and turned off all non-English language support like I usually do. :) (I try not to be so Anglocentric, but that stuff takes up scads of disk space!)
