Thanks for your reply.
Here is the output:
character: ל (1500, #o2734, #x5dc)
preferred charset: iso-8859-8 (ISO/IEC 8859/8)
code point: 0xEC
syntax: w which means: word
buffer code: #xD7 #x9C
file code: #xD7 #x9C (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix)
display: composed to form "לֵ" (see below)
Composed with the following character(s) "ֵ" using this font:
by these glyphs:
[0 1 1500 1328 8 1 7 11 0 nil]
[0 1 1461 1299 0 3 6 -1 2 nil]
Character code properties: customize what to show
name: HEBREW LETTER LAMED
general-category: Lo (Letter, Other)
I do not think I have any font-related customization in my .emacs (this is
the default choice on my system).
Any tips on which fonts I should use (and how to set them up)?
