Re: orion Looking for a font

Here's another option for getting the file:  I had the same problem with 
saving the file and discovered on the other hand that it showed up in the 
cache for Netscape under a somewhat different name.  When I pointed my 
font utility at the cache folder under Netscape, it showed up in the font 
utility as QumranHeb, or something like that, and I was able to install 
the font.  I then moved the file from cache to Windows/system where all 
the other ttf font files are located, because it would eventually be 
erased from the cache.

The one comment that I have is that the keyboard arrangement is different 
from the other Hebrew fonts that I use.  If there were a way of arranging 
it following the pattern of SHebrew from Silver Mountain it would be more 
useful for me.
