    noitallmr, joseph: i wont take it to heart. (btw, everyone agrees 7 is a dumb name, but They do have some convoluted reason for that number)

    jospeh s: ill assume you are talking about a word document or the similar. here are the directions for installing hebrew: (its from a nifty site created by daniel petri, a yid who made aliyah years ago. its a great site, and very easy to understand for the newbie)

    Joe S, Try mariner's links and see if they help you.

    mariner, there convoluted reason is their Marketing Department. They decided to call Windows '95 that, instead of Windows 4.0, because of the terrible reputation that MS-DOS 4.0 earned itself. And if they called the next version by its logical number, Windows 9.0, they were probably afraid people would think Windows is getting old and start thinking Linux or Mac or whatever else.

    If you are not looking to install any aplications with hebrtew charachter support, but simply want to view a web page that displays hebrew charachters, using your Internet Explorer toolbar (not sure how to implement in other browsers) follow this path:

    Click on:

    View
    (then)Encoding
    (then)More
    (then) Hebrew (windows) - make sure this is checked.
