Java and Unicode, Macintosh and Hebrew

Date: Tue Jul 28 1998 - 20:17:29 EDT

I would like to display some Hebrew Unicode characters using Java, on my
Macintosh. So far, I haven't gotten anywhere. Can anyone else?

Does this mean that all of the Hebrew characters are 'missing', or just
some of them?

>The proposals are based on ISO 8957, a standard that had slipped through

Is an implementation of ISO 8957 what would make the Hebrew characters work???

Did Randy ever find the relevant documents?
