    Hebrew you can install easily:
    Just install the hebrew package

    as for installing fonts, see the description below:

    found an old thread about that. also works on webos 2.x.x
    I followed the Instructions on the last page and I can confirm that it works. I can now read vietnamese emails, messages

    here the link:
    http://forums.precentral.net/general...g-fonts-3.html

    go to post #46 if you're on Webos 2.x.x
    search and download the font language you need, then send that file with Webosquickinstall. (you may backup it first)

    thanks to abegee

    Any info on where to get an arabic font and how to get it to work? Thanks!
  13. #13  
    google is your friend,i would say....try type such as "arabic fonts" or "arabic unicode fonts"
    but make sure,it's similiar to that font that your pre is using. You can see what kind of font that is,if you open the fontfile.

    I just received my Hp touchpad. There is no hebrew keyboard and no support for sites in hebrew. This applies obviously to all emails etc.
    Does anyone know when hebrew will be supported out the box by HP

    Use the same instructions as above for hebrew in 2.1 for the touchpad.
