It's a little odd to reply to your own msg, but anyway ...
On the Linux side, I dug up Joel Hoffman's hletter1.tex, which I used a long time ago, along with the the MetaFont source for the Hebrew fonts (hclassic, hcaption) it used. It seems to work okay on the Linux side.
There's a problem on the Mac side. The good news is that his hclassic and hcaption fonts are available as part of ArabTex. However, hclassic-4.pfb, which may be found at
is missing a bunch of glyphs. THe only thing I'm finding are some punctuation marks, some niqqudot (vowels), 'ayin, and an aleph-lamed combination.
Where can I find a complete hclassic.pfb?
