when i assign a hebrew letters to a string, like this:
a=".... hebrew letters";
i could not see it formaly (in appearance) from right to left as the hebrew fonts need, but in reverse.
there is in the directory of mathematica a file ISO-8859-8 which is for hebrew fonts, 
i try:  
$CharacterEncoding ="ISO-8859-8";

a=" ...." 

but the letters inside the quoting still appear from left to right.

or it is not possible,  but it is possible under visual basic when i want to make a variable like this:

a$="letters here go from right to left";

thanks very much
