HH: I didn't even know you could check the style sheet. But at the 
home page for the Jewish Encyclopedia, they had an option to choose 
if you had font display problems. The characters they displayed as a 
test looked like the question marks i had seen. The encyclopedia sent 
you to a link for setting up Internet Explorer to work with Unicode. 
I selected Unicode under Explorer Preferences/languages & 
fonts/default font.

>Of these, the last two do not display dotted letters; Arial Unicode MS and
>Code2000 do, but Arial Unicode MS is not free. Code2000 is, from

HH: Thank you. You not only analyzed the style sheet, knew about 
pricing, but sent me a link to download the font! I downloaded it and 
unzipped it. Then I left it in its folder and put it in hard

HH: The page still looks the same. You need not trouble yourself. The 
issue was not that important, and at least I have a new font. I 
noticed that in Explorer fonts, when there is a list of languages 
available, Hebrew is not one of them. Greek is, but not Hebrew.
