El-Mar's Hebrew Fonts
A Site of El-Mar Software Ltd.


The fonts used by the Hebrew Support of X-Windows & Motif since 1991.
35 pcf files, 8 Type1 files (1 is similar to the proportional Webfont).
Already adopted by 8 workstation vendors, dozens of software houses, and most of the X users in Israel.

In the case that your browser tries to display the file on your screen (instead of importing it), hold the Shift key pressed while selecting the file (under Netscape), or tell it to save the document as a source file.

Place H.fonts.tar.Z in an empty directory, and invoke:
   zcat H.fonts.tar.Z | tar xvf -

From a shell that runs under the same CPU as your display, run:
   xset +fp the-directory-where-you-placed-the-fonts
the-directory-where-you-placed-the-fonts should be replaced by the name of the directory where you placed the fonts (see "Installation").
In order to see the list of the Hebrew fonts, use:
   xlsfonts | grep hebrew
In order to show all the simple Hebrew fonts (not including the scalable) in a loop, use (under csh or tcsh):
   foreach i ( `xlsfonts | grep hebrew | grep -v 0-0-` )
   echo $i
   xfd -fn $i

Under some X11R5 implementations, fonts.alias must be replaced by fonts.alias.R5 (try the original fonts.alias before replacing!)

Don't take scriptB24h.pcf to a grapholog! It is not my (Eli Marmor's) normal hand-writing!
