I would like to construct a palette with Hebrew unicode letters. The characters are FromCharacterCode[Range[1488, 1514]] . Ideally I would also like a palette that would print out the gematria (numerical value) of each letter as it was pressed, i.e FromCharacterCode[1488]=Aleph=1, FromCharacterCode[1489]=Bet=2 etc., This is the matching list {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,20,20,30,40,40,50,50,60,70,80,80,90,90,100,200,300,400} (repeats are intentional) I am running Windows 2003 with support for right-to left languages installed. Does this have to be done by hand or can you construct a program that would make these (and similar) sorts of palettes? --Urijah Kaplan
