: I'm new to TeX and have a few questions about getting Hebrew to work.
: I've been doing research/testing and these are the things I need to work. I'd 
: appreciate help to find out what is the easiest way to get a TeX system that 
: supports all of these.
: 1) Hebrew support (right to left, correct pagination, etc.)
: 2) Unicode/UTF-8
: 3) True Type Fonts (I would like to use SIL's Ezra unicode Hebrew font,
:     but am open to other good, free unicode fonts)
: 4) Memoir class (I need paragraph footnotes)
: I currently have teTeX 3.0 which came with my Slackware 10.2 distribution. 
: However, I don't believe babel in it has Hebrew support, and I can't seem to 
: get Hebrew support added...
: I'm considering trying the TeX Live DVD. I've been researching a lot and have 
: been barking up a lot of wrong trees. Could anyone give me some pointers about 
: what would be the easiest way to do this.
: What classes? or packages? I need and how to install them if needed and how to 
: include them in the .tex file would also be great. Thank you so much.
: Josh
: P.S. Sorry if this is a dup, I wasn't subscribed to the list, so I don't think 
: it went through.
