Obtaining ancient language fonts

Language studies index page Conventions used Important ... Obtaining fonts

To display portions of these pages correctly you will need to obtain suitable fonts. You may have a Hebrew font installed already if you have a Bible study program on your computer. If not (and in any case for some of the other items), you should visit the following sites. Each has directions for downloading and installing the fonts. Most have fonts available for Mac operating systems as well as Windows: I am not aware of the situation with Linux and other UNIX operating systems and would appreciate feedback from anyone using these (email to Richard@abbottfamily.clara.co.uk is the simplest way).

Without suitable fonts, parts of these pages will not display as intended. You can tell if they are installed, if the blocks marked "Sample" below display in an appropriate font or just in normal characters.
