    For a while now I have been looking for a decent
    (preferably freeware) program to open and edit msword
    documents, especially in Hebrew. I have recently
    discovered that Abiword now has Hebrew support. I
    downloaded the windows version (I am running Hebrew

    I find it works well with English msword documents,
    but with Hebrew is depends on the fonts. Times New
    Roman works fine, (or courier in "plain text" mode),
    but in all other fonts the Hebrew is reversed. Even
    with Times New Roman there seems to be a problem with
    the left parentheses being reversed.

    Does anyone have any experience with this or
    suggestions on how to use (or at least read word
    documents with) other Hebrew fonts.
