The Windows 7 console does not even support displaying the Hebrew 
characters. My understanding is that this is because the only fonts it 
lets you pick are lacking the required characters.

I tested this by creating a Unicode file with notepad (which displayed

The first line was ok but the second one was either question marks or 
squares. The only fonts Windows will let me pick are 'Consolas', 'Lucida 
Console' and 'Raster Fonts'.
