hi
I am working with a font called drogulin from davaka.
it is used in the pdf's of the talmud on the halakhah.com/ site.

I seen in the bible works forum that this font has been mentioned. I am trying to find out what codepage is uses, and its 'official character range'.

It is unusual because it assigns hebrew characters in the english character range.

your help will be appreciated.
Thanks.


here is a print out of the character set as an image: Notice that 0123456789 is the correct ASCII locations for those numbers, however the Hebrew Chars are not in 'normal' positions for an ASCII font.

1210

I realize that I was just fishing for an answer.

All I really need to do is map the hebrew chars and the few of the punctuation chars in the 255 range.
it seems this font is custom from davka.

thanks for the interest. ( views that is ).

off the main subject:
I assume BibleWorks already has the bab Talmud?
If so, does anyone know if the BibleWorks version is the same as the pdfs on that site?

thanks.

No, BibleWorks does not have the Babylonian Talmud, at least not in Hebrew/Aramaic. There is a partial English translation of the Talmud, done by Rodkinson.
