The bracket problem is already tracked as issue 76587.

Could you please upload the document (use the "Create a new attachment" link) so
that we can reproduce the problem regarding the Hebrew glyphs. Thanks for
supporting us!

MRU->TL: on a system, where no Mathtype is installed (such as every Linux ;-) )
when double clicking such an object, the upcoming OO Math window won't take the
correct font for displaying the Hebrew glyphs.

About Editing the formula:

The broken display of the characters does not depend upon MathType being
available or not. On my English Windows 2003 Server there is MathType 3.1
installed as part of MS Office as well, and I can't see the text properly either.

Debugging into this with HDU and testing what happens if one enters Hebrew
characters in MathType the result is that this is a problem of MathType since it
simply ignores one byte of the Hebrew unicode character.
However the problem might not exist if the OS has an old non-unicode Hebrew font
installed and that one gets used within MathType for those text parts. This
remains to be tested by the user. But as said it is a problem of MathType 3.1
and not of OOo. Thus we can't do anything about that one.


About viewing the formula without editing it:

TL->SJ: Can you please check if the problem of the seemingly corrupted looking
preview image is on our side (i.e. if it is a problem that can be fixed in OOo
3.2) or if it was a bug of the application (maybe an older OOo?) that wrote that
preview image?

Please take over. Thanks!
