I am learning Hebrew, God willing, and would like to use the following
website. (It's the OT in a Hebrew font.)

http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/ipb-e/tanach/i...

I followed the instructions included with the .exe file but they were
written for Netscape Navigator but I use Mozilla's Firefox 1.0.6. My OS is
WinXP Pro on a 3 GHz machine.

Here are the instrcutions in case they are actually useful to me...

==========================

Contents of zip file:

wehad.ttf Truetype font in the Helvetica/David style
(proportional)
wehm.ttf Truetype font in the Courier/Shalom Stick style
(fixed space)


wehad___.pfm Adobe Type 1 font - Helvetica/David style
(proportional)
wehad___.pfb
wehad___.afm
wehad___.inf
wehad___.cfg

wehm____.pfm Adobe Type 1 font - Courier/Shalom Stick style
(fixed space)
wehm____.pfb
wehm____.afm
wehm____.inf
wehm____.cfg

Netscape installation guide:
----------------------------

1) download webfont.zip to your PC.
2) CD to your WINDOWS SYSTEM directory. e.g. C:>CD \WINDOWS\SYSTEM
3) zip this file. e.g. C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM> PKUNZIP
\TEMP\WEBFONT.zip
4) at Windows, run the Control Panel application (located at Main group)
5) click Fonts icon, and click the Install Font button. Down at the
bottom you
should find the Web Hebrew AD and Web Hebrew Monospace. Select them
both (use
SHIFT), and Install them. (You should see them now at your fonts list).
6) click Close button and return/start Netscape.
7) inside Netscape at Options menu , choose Preferences... and make the
headline at the top say: Styles.
8) click the Change Proportional Font button, and choose Web Hebrew AD
Euro.
click the Change Fixed Font button and choose Web Hebrew Monospace
Euro.
9) click all OK buttons you find,
10) chage the Home Page Location, URL box to:
http://snunit.huji.ac.il/snunit/

==========================

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me. (Oh, and no, the "Help" file
wasn't helpful.)

Why would you ask about a competing product in a microsoft group. Ask in firefox. Any windows specific instructions (which are arse about in your blurb) can be found in Windows help.

In order to install the font you have to use the Control Panel.

This answer was posted on alt.mozilla.fan and worked as easily as it is to
understand.

> 1. Download the webfont.exe
> 2. Put it in an empty (new) directory and doubleclick it.
> 3. Copy wehad.ttf and wehm.ttf to your fonts folder (c:\windows\fonts).
>
> That should do it, the rest of the files is for use with adobe programs.
>
> You don't have to make them the default fonts in firefox, and you don't
> have to restart firefox.
