There is a problem with Hebrew font and character spacing. With some Unicode
fonts there are wrong spacings between characters. See example file.

Sorry, but I cannot see a problem (on linux).

Please attach a screenshot that demonstrates the faulty rendering. Or clearly
mark the text that has spacing problems.

I think this is related to Windows uniscribe, not directly to OOo.
Maybe updating usp10.dll should resolve the problem (look at
for more informations)
I can confirm that spacings are wrong on some complex unicode fonts in Windows,
but I cannot tell if the bug is in OOo or in Windows.

ES->HDU: I thought I forwarded you the same issue (same samples) this week????
I can reproduce it on Windows.
Comment 10 2007-11-19 11:07:25 UTC
Can anyone confirm this with a newer usp10.dll, e.g. on WinXP SP2 or Vista?
