Does anyone have a tool to convert Unicode Hebrew (or Win-1255 encoding) to CCAT Hebrew encoding or BibleWorks Hebrew fonts? This would involve a large file, so a Word macro would not work.

Thanks.

Great! We've all been working so hard to get everything to Unicode, and now you want to go back to CCAT/BWfonts! ;-o
Anyway, some suggestions:
1) GreekTranscoder (http://www.greektranscoder.org/)- Will that work?
2) SIL Converters (http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=EncCnvtrs#3b878279) - How about this?
3) I'm not at my school computer, so I'm not sure about this one. Bibloi (aka Silver Mountain BibleWindows) had a two-way Unicode / SGreek converter, and I think the SGreek was connected to CCAT in some way.

If #1 or 2 don't work, let me know, and I will check on #3 when I get a chance.

Just checked, and the Bibloi converter won't help. It's two-way for the Greek (SGreek >< Unicode) but only one way (SHebrew > Unicode). SHebrew would still need another conversion step to get to CCAT...

I'm particularly interested in converting the Unicode version of the Aleppo Codex that's floating around on the web--at the very least for personal use, at most for public distribution as a BW module. I'll have to check out the legalities, etc. It is available for several free Bible software packages.
