    Please don't use SIL Ezra for such purposes, which is a legacy encoded
    and visually ordered Hebrew font, and is not rendered correctly in IE6.
    Instead, please use Ezra SIL, which is basically the same outlines but
    properly Unicode encoded. The URL given is for Ezra SIL, and it is a
    free download.

    By the way, this font mostly works fine with any Windows (95+) system.
    Office 2003 is required only for ideal placement of certain accents etc.
