To Jack & Jim on Fonts

This sounds like a problem with the shift to Unicode, which I am 
familiar with with other non-Roman scripts and moving to Word 97. The 
fonts may be incorrectly marked for Unicode, e.g. as symbol fonts, or 
not as symbol fonts. You may be able to get round this by typing in 
another font and then switching to the appropriate font. Try out a few 
combinations and see if it works.

I have checked out both of your sites. I had already downloaded the Lachish font
Jack's site, but had problems with it. I am using QText 7, and when I configured
language to Hebrew and switched to Lachish font, I got nothing but boxes when I 
typed. In order to use the font, I had to switch over to English and type the 
script in
backwards, with the keys configured to an American keyboard. I would like to be 
to configure the program to Hebrew (right to left) and hit the mem key on my 
keyboard and actually get a mem. Jack says he has some of his fonts converted to
Israeli specs? Which fonts are those? What exactly does that mean?

Are Jim's fonts good for Israeli word processors? If not all of them are, which 
ones are
