SIL Hebrew Font System License

NRSI staff, 1999-06-30

Ezra and Unicode

This SIL Hebrew Font System is a pre-Unicode or “legacy” font system. It provides a means of working with biblical Hebrew texts in an encoding created by SIL in 1995. These fonts are superceded by Unicode-encoded Hebrew fonts, such as Ezra SIL.

The transliteration fonts in this package were made obsolete with the advent of Latin Unicode fonts, available with any newer OS. Only a keyboard is helpful (not required) for typing Hebrew transliteration. See last item in Ezra SIL package or Hebrew-Greek Transliteration Unicode Keyboard for Macintosh for two examples.

The SIL Hebrew Font System is copyrighted licensed freeware, as indicated below.

Before downloading the SIL Hebrew Font System package we ask that you read the following distribution restrictions and license. If you agree to abide by these restrictions then follow the link at the bottom to go to the download page.

Distribution Restrictions

You may freely share these fonts and keyboards with others, but with the following restrictions:

  • All files must be copied together, including this one.
  • No fee may be charged for the fonts.
  • They may not be used as a basis for other fonts.

Even though these fonts are freely distributable, SIL retains all copyright and ownership of the included fonts and keyboards and reserves the right to restrict their use and distribution at any time. They may be placed on bulletin boards, etc. but cannot be included in (or bundled with) any commercial product including hard disks or CD-ROMs without specific written permission.
