Description vpoythress 2006-02-01 16:30:18 UTC
I have both .odt files and .odp files that display Hebrew pointing correctly in linux (Fedora Core 4, running OO 184.108.40.206-5.1), but not in Windows XP (running OO 2.0.154 and the stable 2.0.1, both of which I have checked). Moreover, when I first entered the characters for waw-shewa-he-holem-waw-qamets-he (the first line) in Windows XP, it displayed with a gap. Then I changed View to 200% and it displayed correctly. Then I returned to View Page-Width, and it displayed correctly. I will the attach the files. They use SBL Hebrew font, of which my version is 11-11-2005. I'll try to send a copy of this font too, as an attachment.

Can you attach a screenshot of how it should look like? If this is happening in writer, too, thi seems not to be an impress only problem.

Created attachment 33822 [details] Exported from OO 2.0.1 on FC4. This looks as it should.

Created attachment 33823 [details] From HebOnFC.odt, exported by OO 2.0.1 on FC4. This looks right.

I have worked with quite a bit of pointed Hebrew text on OO 2.0.1. In general, OO 2.0.1 running on top of FC4 gets it right, and when exporting to .pdf exports it correctly. On the other hand, the same .odp and .odt files displayed within OO 2.0.1 running on Windows XP or Windows 2000 get odd problems occasionally. .odp sometimes displays problems even when .odt does not. Windows 2000 gets many problems, so I have basically ignored it. Both XP and 2000 will display _unpointed Hebrew_ correctly (characters in the range U+05D0 to U+05EA). These characters are usually all that are used in modern Israeli Hebrew. But when I add the pointing (because the horizontal offsets from the previous character lead to overlapping horizontal positions) it may lead to problems. (Pointing is roughly the characters U+05B0 to U+05BC.) Most of these problems are now cured, both in linux and Windows XP. But when I combine a pointing glyph with a cantilation glyph (basically U+0591 to U+05AF), both of which have special horizontal offsets, then we get problems in XP on occasion. I have also generated problems with U+FB3B and other unicode characters in the range U+FB2A to U+FB4B when I insert them as the first (right-most) character in a whole line of text. I have tried to isolate the problems in the special files that have been attached to this issue 61485.
