The Symbol font (Truetype) is used to show occassional Greek characters. We also use a font that uses upper ASCII to show Hebrew in the same manner as "Web Hebrew" fonts (with the same character assignments) but with added features. Included in the font is transliteration symbols for Hebrew in two schemes to make it backwards compatible with our first special font we used on our sites. And instead of using the "square script" used to represent Hebrew today and over the last few milennia, we use Palaeo-Hebrew script. Palaeo-Hebrew has been used in the past to archaize, that is, to preserve a link to an earlier state of things. That is after all, what we are about, so Palaeo is the perfect script for us to use.

Our masthead shows an example of the Evyoni Palaeo-Hebrew font. It is mapped to keys just as the various Hebrew "web fonts" but includes standard Hebrew transliteration most used in grammars and articles (based on W.S. LaSor, Handbook of Biblical Hebrew, vol.I. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1980. pp. 220-1).

Most pages featuring these transliteration and Palaeo-Hebrew characters (which the Evyoni font allows the reader to see correctly) are marked with a alef.gif (1449 bytes) at the page top. And the picture is linked to this page.
