SIL Hebrew Font System Requirements (Obsolete)

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 These fonts are superceded by Unicode-encoded Hebrew fonts, such as Ezra SIL.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.

These fonts and keyboards were designed for the following systems:

  • Windows 3.1 (they may also be used in later versions of Windows up though Windows XP)
  • Macintosh (System 7 or 8)

Windows users should download and install the Keyman keyboarding utility. It is not included in the SIL Hebrew Font System package and must be downloaded separately.

Macintosh users should download and install the SILKey 1.2 keyboarding utility. It is not included in the SIL Hebrew Font System package and must be downloaded separately.

GX Macintosh System Requirements (Obsolete and removed):

The GX features were only available within a GX application on System 7 or 8. GX is obsolete on current Macintosh systems.
