General Purpose and Transliteration

The main text font for this site is Gentium Plus (which does not include glyphs for Hebrew). We also include Linux Libertine, Brill, and Charis SIL in our font stack, so if you have any of these fonts installed on your system, all should be well.

What you see: šḇilāʾ, ʾurḥāʾ
