Hebrew & emacs & mutt & xterm

Emacs now support hebrew very nicely. (It took only 30 years…)

You would need the latest version emacs-snapshot from here (once emacs 24 is released officially that would be included built in).

Then add the following to .emacs:

(setq-default bidi-display-reordering t)

And you should be all set…

For good hebrew font, I use efont with xterm. For mutt add to ~/.muttrc:

set display_filter=bidiv

(You will need the bidiv package in debian/ubuntu.)

Now, i can read/write Hebrew emails in an xterm window while being logged in remotely.
