It's because hebrew reads in the opposite direction to english. I tried using notepad instead but it didn't recongise the characters.
Anyone know what to do?
Where "rtl" is right-to-left and "ltr" is left-to-right (the default).
Also I tried my own suggestion and it doesn't work either. That CSS filter does work on images but perhaps not on text.
More issues... requests for Right-To-Left (RTL) language support among the localized tools have increased over the past few months. Most languages are written left-to-right... Japanese also offers vertical writing... Hebrew, Arabic and a few others are written right-to-left. Unicode support gets us partway there, because we can specify the characters and direction. There also needs to be system-level support for RTL typing, .....
We haven't solved all these problems yet—the Hebrew version of FreeHand pays for itself, but seeing more sales in RTL countries could help pay for this engineering.
I also found this tool:
Ksharim XI, a Hebrew file-conversion program
Hope this helps

I guess i don;t understand what these codes are. Does google read them as hebrew so it can identify search queries?
And if one is better than the other, why?
And how come other sites in Hebrew show hebrew letters in their source code and not these other language codes?
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
Even if many editors display the rtl text from left to right the browsers will do it right. I think this is to keep it less ambigous to coders since the tags are ltr...
