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

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,

The SIL Hebrew and Greek font systems (including the Ezra and Galatia fonts
and full instructions) are available for free download from But these are not yet
Unicode compatible. See also links to other Hebrew fonts at and to other Greek fonts
