Available Hebrew Fonts.
-----------------------
Hebrew fonts come in three versions, according to the letters'
positions in the ASCII sequences. 

   Old Code (= 7-bits fonts), also called oldcode. Aleph is ASCII 96,
   Bet is ASCII 97 etc. That is, Hebrew letters take the positions
   of lower case English letters. 

   New Code (=The 8-bits fonts), also called newcode. Aleph is ASCII 224,
   Bet is ASCII 225 etc. Used in Unix, VMS, PC MS-windows.

For DOS PC the font names are sometimes shorter because of
DOS necessities.
