I just want to note that cutting from the WLC text available at http://www.tanach.us/
(using Firefox or Camino) and pasting into Mellel (http://www.mellel.com/
) using either the Ezra SIL or SBL Hebrew fonts results in an
extremely good quality reproduction which may then be printed as a PDF
file. Apple's Pages word processor and, I believe, the latest version
of Microsoft Word will allow PDF files to be inserted as though they
were images (but they retain the scalability and quality of the PDF).
Not the ideal solution, but using Mellel certainly seems to produce
the best results in this instance.
