       Hebrew, hebrew - Introduction to Hebrew language support

       This  reference	page  describes the codeset, locale, device, and other
       kinds of support for the Hebrew language.

       The operating system supports the following coded character sets (code‐
       sets)  for Hebrew by means of locales, codeset converters, or both: ISO
       8859-8 (ISO Latin/Hebrew)

	      ISO8859-8 is the string that  represents	this  codeset  in  the
	      names  of	 locales  and codeset converters. See iso8859-1(5) for
	      more information.	 UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8

	      UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings	that  represent	 these
	      encoding formats in the names of locales and codeset converters.
	      See Unicode(5) for more information.  PC code pages

	      cp862 and cp1255 are the strings that represent  these  encoding
	      formats  in  the	names of codeset converters.  See code_page(5)
	      for more information.

       See iso8859-8(5) for information on the ISO Latin/Hebrew	 codeset.  See
       i18n_intro(5)  and  l10n_intro(5) for introductory information on code‐

       The  operating	system	 provides   the	  following   Hebrew   locale:
       he_IL.ISO8859-8, for Israel

	      This    locale	is    also    available	   under    the	  name
	      he_IL.ISO8859-8@ucs4 for use by applications that need  to  con‐
	      vert  file  data	in  ISO8859-8 format to UCS-4 process code for
	      special operations on characters.

	      For backward compatibility, iw_IL.ISO8859-8 is supported	as  an
	      alias for he_IL.ISO8859-8.

       You  can	 use  the  locale  command  (see  locale(1)) to find out which
       locales are installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information
       on setting a locale from the operating system command line.

       In  the	Common	Desktop Environment (CDE), you need to set a locale by
       setting the session language. To do this, from the Options menu of  the
       Login  window,  choose  Language. Then, from the Language options menu,
       choose a session language.

       The operating system supports the following VT-style and PC-style  key‐
       boards with Hebrew characters printed on the keys:

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)	 PC-Style (102 keys)
       LK411-LT			 LK471-AT
       LK433-LT			 LK97W-AT

       For your keyboard to function correctly with your system, you must load
       a keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is  appropriate  for  your  key‐
       board's	model  and language. If you load a keymap that does not corre‐
       spond to your keyboard's model and language, your keyboard behavior  is
       unpredictable.  The  label  located on the bottom surface of a keyboard
       usually specifies its model (five-letter code) and language (two-letter
       code).  See keyboard(5) for general information on keymaps and instruc‐
       tions for loading them in different formats.  The following tables sup‐
       ply Hebrew-specific information that you need when loading keymaps.

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style		For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:	Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-LT	      lk411	LK471-AT       lk471at or lk471
       LK433-LT	      lk433	LK97W-AT       lk97wat or lk97w
				PCXAL-KT       pcxalkt
				PCXAL-AT       pcxalat
				PCXAL-GT       pcxalgt

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:
       PCXAL-GT	      hebrew pcxalgt
       PCXAL-KT	      hebrew pcxalkt

       Keyboards  can  have  keys with characters printed on both the left and
       right half of the keycap. The way you set or use your keyboard to  send
       different sets of characters varies from one keyboard model to another.
       Furthermore, your keyboard allows you to	 enter	more  characters  than
       those printed on the keycaps. See keyboard(5) for information on how to
       enter characters.

       The fonts available for languages supported by the ISO  8859-8  codeset
       are  listed  in	iso8859-8(5). See i18n_printing(5) for a discussion of
       printer support options.

       Commands: locale(1)

       Others: code_page(5), i18n_intro(5), i18n_printing(5),  iconv_intro(5),
       iso8859-8(5), keyboard(5), l10n_intro(5), Unicode(5)
