I'm not using any Hebrew at all, but I was using David, which your computer may not have. I'l try to reset the default.

  Yigal,
   
  You are apparently using the SBL Hebrew font which appears as though it were a series of playing cards laid side-by-side when I receive it.  Would it be possible to switch to another font when you post?  I find it necessary to hit "reply" and reformat the message in another font such as Arial Unicode MS in order to read it.
   
  thanks,
  george
