Your problem may well not be with fonts at all, but because you are 
subscribed to the digest for this list. I would expect that the digest 
is compiled in ISO-8859-1 encoding which does not support Hebrew, and so 
you get the question marks. If so, this is a bug in the list software. I 
would suggest that you change your subscription to individual posts. 
These should then arrive UTF-8 encoded, an encoding which supports 
Hebrew, as specified by the author (at least in this case), and you 
should be able to read them.
