Dear Oun Kwon,

I can't imagine what you might be talking about here.  When I look at the
sample page online it looks like a perfectly ordinary English font.
 Naturally the online display is a little fuzzier than the printed version,
 but still quite readable to my eye.  (Not that it's intended that anyone
should "learn Hebrew" from an online sample page, as you say you've
concluded you can't do from this book.)

Still, perhaps I didn't follow what your point was.

Best regards,
Dana Densmore
