What font do you all use when your input method is Hebrew-QWERTY?

When I use TekniaHebrew with this input method, it reverts back to Lucida Grande (perhaps b/c TekniaHebrew is not unicode aware?)

I can use SBL Hebrew with this input method, but I can't get the pointing to line up well. (FWIW, I'm using TextEdit)

Thus, I'm curious what fonts other people are using.

Many thanks.

That is correct--the OS X input method only works with Unicode fonts.

I can use SBL Hebrew with this input method, but I can't get the pointing to line up well. (FWIW, I'm using TextEdit)

You might want to take a look at these two threads: 1 2. I prefer SBL Hebrew with Mellel myself.
