Hebrew Support for Your Browser:
Hebräisch im Browser
Es ist zwar vieles wesentlich einfacher geworden, als in den
Anfangszeiten des WWW, wie man an einigen der älteren, fantasievoll
improvisierten Seiten in haGalil noch sehen kann. Wir dachten es ist mal wieder
Zeit, und so bringen wir heute ein paar Worte zum Thema "hebräisches Brausen".
Falls jemand Lust hat den Text zu übersetzen, welcome! Zusätzliche (ältere)

To see all of the Hebrew on this site as it is intended to
be seen, we recommend Microsoft's Internet Explorer version 6.0 (ie6) or later
for Windows 2000 or later, for which fine Hebrew support is supplied either on
installation or as an update. If you have ie5 or later, but it does not
show Hebrew correctly -- first check that you have set the browser to choose the
right encoding automatically: click on "View" on the menu at the top of
the screen, and then on "Encoding", and see that "Auto-Select" is checked; if it
is not, do check it.
If that still does not work, you presumably need to download the free Hebrew
support package: click on "Tools" on the menu at the top of the screen,
and then on "Windows Update"; when you get to the Windows Update site, click on
"Product Updates", and when you finally get the list of possible updates (this
may take a long time), scroll down to the "Hebrew support" and get it.
(While you are there, if you see any Critical Updates, you should also get
Standard Windows Hebrew support does include vowels, but it
does not include cantillation marks in our
Bible with Cantillation Marks. To support cantillation marks and not
see black rectangles, you need to install a
special font supporting cantillation marks; we also highly recommend
installing the improved version from Office 2003 of the special helper program
called the "Uniscribe
Script Processor" responsible for handling complex scripts like Biblical
If you have Linux or insist on using the Mozilla
Firefox under Windows instead of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, there is a
special version of Firefox that supports essentially all of the Hebrew on our
BlackSapphire; this version is, in our opinion, far superior to the standard
version of Firefox with its feeble Hebrew support. BlackSapphire hopes to
also make a version for the Mac, so Mac users should check there, too.
If you have a Mac, Microsoft's Internet Explorer does
not properly support our normal right-to-left Hebrew, but
Apple's Safari does reportedly support our Hebrew (even with vowels) and
there is Mozilla, an
alternative that works with most of this site (Hebrew without vowels). We
have abandoned our previous plans for versions for
Visual Hebrew for older browsers (Left-to-Right "Euro" fonts) and
Mac's unique RTL Hebrew.

your Windows or Mac browser including typing in Hebrew for search boxes and the

If you have any questions or comments, we intend to answer all
real (non-junk non-virus) mail within a day or two; so if you do not hear from
us within three days, please write again assuming that either your letter or our
answer has been lost, which is hardly rare these days. Note that letters
with attached programs that can be run and letters with huge attachments are
automatically rejected. The hundreds of letters we get each month have
helped us improve the site greatly, and we thank you for your on-going help:
God bless you all!
