Hi Petr,
Now that he subject is up: If the consonants AND vowels display fine in your sample, but the accents come across as square boxes, what would that indicate? (I'm asking out of plain curiosity, I usually don't have any actual need to send accented text to anyone).
all the best

Do You mean in this email discussion?
The most people here are just using NO SPECIFIC FONT.

Hebrew here is either coded using the CCAT scheme (i.e. in
plain ascii) so that You don't actually see any hebrew
(i.e. You have to "decode" it by yourself)
or the hebrew is encoded throught the "unicode".

If You have problem reading email's in unicode,
your OS/mail reader is likely to be either outdated
or your fonts are misconfigured.

P.S. Example of hebrew in unicode:

 ?????? ??? ?????

 ??????????? ?????? ????????
