looking for hebrew and russian fonts

Hi,
this is my first thread here, i hope i'll have the answer.
I've bought the prs505 and i don't think i've came accross hebrew fonts, nor russian fonts.

can someone explain to me how can i read hebrew or russian in the device? can i download fonts? is other fonts will be loaded on the device in the new firmware?

thanks,

Gur

You can embed fonts in both LRF (Sony native format) and PDF documents if the chars needed aren't in the built-in fonts. Take a look at BookDesigner (on the wiki, etc) for some software to help create suitable files.

There's also some work been done with reflashing the 500 to have russian fonts, but I don't know the status of similar work on the 505.

As I recall, some people did try Hebrew but it was displayed left-to-right.

I don't believe the Sony supports right-to-left fonts.
