    This is for displaying Hebrew fonts online and in HTML documents. Type from left to right, the system will reverse whatever you type. For example, for Yeshua type, L to R, yod, shin, waw, ayin, &#1497;&#1513;&#1493;&#1506; and it will display correctly as ישוע


    &#1488;=א

    &#1489;=ב

    &#1490;=ג

    &#1491;=ד

    &#1492;=ה

    &#1493;=ו

    &#1494;=ז

    &#1495;=ח

    &#1496;=ט

    &#1497;=י

    &#1498;=ך

    &#1499;=כ

    &#1500;=ל

    &#1501;=ם

    &#1502;=מ

    &#1503;=ן

    &#1504;=&#1504

    &#1505;=ס

    &#1506;=ע

    &#1507;=ף

    &#1508;=פ

    &#1509;=ץ

    &#1510;=צ

    &#1511;=ק

    &#1512;=ר

    &#1513;=ש

    &#1514;=ת

    You can also do the Greek with ISO numbers. But it is easier to do this. Prefix each character with & and follow it with ;, then type the name of the Greek character, alpha for lower case alpha and Alpha for upper case.
    &alpha;= &alpha; and &Alpha;= &Alpha;
    &beta; = &beta; and &Beta; = &Beta;
    &gamma; = &gamma; and &Gamma; = &Gamma;


    There is one unusual letter. &sigmaf; = &sigmaf; And so on through the Alphabet.

    You can also do Arabic, this is Allah, in Arabic, &#1573;&#1604;&#1604;&#1605; is إللم

    I don't have all the numbers.What you can do is work thorough the numbers backward and forward from these until you find the entire alphabet. That's how I did the Hebrew. Then test them by previewing a post and back button without posting it.

    I did a search for a unicode table and I found this:

    http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/unicode/#links

    Click the characters link or scroll down and then pick the language you want.

    If you type &# followed by the number it lists under decimal it should turn out right. For example for Alef/Aleph it lists 1488 so just add stick the &# in front of it.

    &#1488 = Aleph the first letter in the Hebrew Alephbet
    &#1514 = Tau the last letter in the Hebrew alephbet, together the Hebrew equivalent of the &Alpha; and the &Omega; in the N.T.
