Does the computer viewing the site have the windows-1255 font installed? Is there any reason not to use UTF-8?

Dale BurrellCommented:
Actually before you try that, try setting Response.CodePage = 1255 (instead of session.codepage).

Else try

Response.CodePage = 65001
Response.CharSet = "utf-8"

I believe thats right, but you an always google for more detail.

Have you tried viewing the site from a different computer? I can only think the correct font is missing from the computer viewing the site. Is the site available for me to view?

response.charset="windows-1255")  it solved the problem but for some reason when I use response.write its not shows correctly  the characters

I would suggest getting it working on a regular computer before worrying about the iPhone. Some things won't work on the iPhone as easy as a regular computer. You did see my comment to you Response.CodePage (instead of Session.Codepage)?

here is code to get you on your way.


http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/18513/Using-custom-fonts-with-dynamic-headings

It requires you a True Type Font to use.

The reason that you are having the current issue is (people dont install hebrew by default)

You are better off injecting the font into your website instead of trying to rely on the client machine to be equipped with it


Hope that helps

Can you make the site accessible to me? Alternatively post the page.

Dale BurrellCommented:
OK, firstly thats not a correctly formed web page - there are no HTML header elements etc. I don't know for sure whether that would affect it. But it makes it harder to know what is happening.

I suspect esskayb2d is correct in saying that the font doesn't exist on the computer. I would personally stick with utf-8 and ensure you are using a font which has Hebrew characters and which many people will have.

If you google around you can find example from people who have done this e.g. http://www.i18nguy.com/unicode/shma.html.
