SIL Hebrew Font System Additional Files (Obsolete)
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 These fonts are superceded by Unicode-encoded Hebrew fonts, such as Ezra SIL.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 original keyboards were written for Keyman 3.2 and do not function with Keyman 5 or 6. No corrections or additions have been made to these keyboards. They do not use Unicode.
