Thanks for volunteering. I am adding you to the list on


and to the W3C email list for translators as described on that page.


HTML 4.0 includes support for Hebrew, based upon Unicode and
markup for controlling right to left, left to right and mixed
direction text. Are browsers available in Israel with support
for Hebrew fonts?  It may take the main vendors a little time
to fully support the internationalization features in HTML 4.0
but they are committed publically to so doing.

p.s. sorry for the delay in replying.
