You shouldnt be so quick to jump on
something without full information.
I receive my mail on one of the mail
addresses that require a browser to
view the messages. I just found out
that iCab doesnt show Hebrew. But it
handles Latin based messages better
than Mozilla for Macintosh OS 9.
However, if I wish to view Hebrew,
Mozilla works better.
Yes, I know I need a new computer which
will have full support for the latest
unicode, as soon as I can afford it.
As for the message that Dora Smith
complained about, neither browser was
able to make heads nor tails of the
Hebrew text. Mozilla showed the text
you included in your message as well as
Hebrew web pages, so my conclusion that
something was wrong with that message.
