Thank you for your interesting thesis. Unfortunately I don't have time to
read it in detail.

Concerning displaying the Hebrew and Greek letters, you may wish to look at
the Biblical Languages list:

I see you are already using Unicode UTF-8 (whether you knew it or not) in
your thesis, at least for the quote marks which come out right (with MS
Internet Explorer 6) only if View - Encoding - Unicode (UTF-8) is selected.
This is good. In this case you should also be able to use Unicode Greek and
Hebrew. In fact I see you have some Unicode Greek (unaccented, so less
problematic) later in the document. Unfortunately Unicode Hebrew does not
yet display with many browsers other than MS IE5+. For Unicode Greek, see
Patrick Rourke's site, http://www.stoa.org/unicode/.

The SIL Hebrew and Greek font systems (including the Ezra and Galatia fonts
and full instructions) are available for free download from
http://www.sil.org/computing/fonts/Lang/silfonts.html. But these are not yet
Unicode compatible. See also links to other Hebrew fonts at
http://www.sil.org/computing/fonts/lang/Hebrew.html and to other Greek fonts
at http://www.sil.org/computing/fonts/lang/Greek.html.
