1. set the codepage of the page to hebrew (windows-1255) or utf8
2. save the page with hebrew or utf8

Alternative to setting the codepage is to alert directly in unicode as I did in the alert

Perhaps better this way round:
alert("\u05E9\u05DC\u05D5\u05DD");



alert("\u05d6\u05b0\u05d0\u05b5\u05d1");

If I can show it, I do have hebrew everywhere here:


<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=UTF-8">
<div id="test">
Listen to a recording of this text by גל ויסברג (Gal Weisberg)
</div>
 
<script>
alert("\u05DD\u05D5\u05DC\u05E9\n"+document.getElementById('test').innerHTML+'\n'+"גל ויסברג")
</script>

Open in new window

The weird text is actually hebrew in my pspad editor and is shown as such by the browser too once I saved it as utf-8

So may I ask why a "B" grade - if you could not verify my answer is correct, then you could have waited. If it was not correct, then it should not have been accepted.
