[b-hebrew] Hebrew in messages

I just noticed something. While checking up some other settings on my browser, I noticed that I had set the language encoding to “Hebrew (windows)”. When I set the language encoding to UTF-8, Hebrew written in Windows-1255 encoding is displayed
Now does the second line still show &#1488;&#1489;&#1490;&#1491; or does it show Hebrew letters?
Hebrew encoded as character entities Camino rendered as Hebrew letters, both when encoded as Hebrew (windows) and as UTF-8.
An example of character entities follows:
How does that render in your browser or mail program?
What I noticed is that when you encoded Hebrew as character entities, somewhere between your screen and the B-Hebrew archives, the coding was changed from character entities to string encoding. I don’t know where the change came from, but it is clearly recognizable when looking at the page source. What you wrote as Windows-1255 encoding is stored on the B-Hebrew archives as character entities. What are your settings?
