Default Help free our imprisoned Hebrew fonts!

Can this REALLY be?!?!? ... that there is no unrooted support for getting at the Hebrew fonts we all know are tucked away inside our magical devices!

My perky iPhone friends have been tap tap tapping away in Hebrew -- reading Hebrew books, visiting Hebrew-based websites ... and I'm left standing here staring at strings of empty boxes, lugging my laptop EVERYWHERE because my Android is forced to censor anything in Hebrew!

PLEASE! Why must I labor and toil at emails, routing them back & forth thru my laptop -- because MY Smart phone can't "do" Hebrew?! My little Hero is INFINITELY Smarter than that half-eaten piece of fruit-phone!

Why must there be app's it won't let me use, books & websites it can't let me read, all because its Hebrew fonts are locked away in prison, buried deep in its precious silcon brain!!!!

Silicon?!? Sand!!!? Enough Now! Unlock these shackles! Free our Captive Fonts!

Is there no Moses, no Miriam among you, ready to lead our Hebrew Fonts out of bondage? Where are the True High Priests/Priestesses of Development? Those who would triumph over the vanity of iPhone wizardry?

Hear now the cry, the murmuring throughout Android-land: "Let our Hebrew fonts go!"

bi-di always comes later because it's more complicated. I remember waiting for it to come for mozilla.

Shalom.
I must agree with this frustration. There are a ton of apps to be developed if Hebrew were available. Luach, Siddur, Tanach, Mishnah/Talmud, Israeli newspapers, railway/bus schedules, english/hebrew dictionary, etc ... These are all available for other platforms but not the Droid. Oh well, luckilly, we Jews are used to waiting ....
L'hitraot.
