[b-hebrew] Hebrew fonts again

On the second question: That is a very sensible solution. As far as I can
remember, the only potential unwanted side effect is that, if you choose a
value that is too small for the Hebrew font size, it may be slightly chopped
off. (Of course, in MS Word 2003 the Hebrew text font size is set
independently of the Latin size, so an appropriate line specing depends on
your setting for both font sizes.)

Two font questions (perennial issue, it seems):
Somebody (Jason Hare, I think?) mentioned recently that Times New Roman and
Arial occur in updated versions with Windows Vista. Am I right that the
trouble with holam on vocalized Hebrew still persists??
When using excellent fonts like Ezra SIL or SBL Hebrew in a regular Word
document written in Times New Roman, inserted Hebrew passages cause lines to
move further apart. What would be the sensible thing to do about that? Would
setting line spacing to a specific number of points, rather than just
"single", cause unwanted side effects?
