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
everything fine, in Windows 7), containing:</pre>

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'.
It should let you pick any monospace font. At least one of those
should contain a Hebrew encoding. If not, you might need to set
the default locale to Hebrew in order to test this (which will
only be possible after clicking "add support for complex text
layout languages", or something to similar effect, in Regional
Settings). This will also install the Hebrew fonts.</p>
