The latest versions of Microsoft’s core fonts (Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman) for Windows include some of the Hebrew characters in this range.

The characters that appear in the first column of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.
