Apple II Hebrew Character Rom Made Available

Gil Megidish, known for his Apple II binary file emulator, has captured and released the Apple IIe Hebrew Character ROM.   This ROM allows the Apple II to display the Hebrew alphabet.   According to Antoine Vignau’s Apple II Documentation Project RTF file included with the files,

“This is the Apple IIe Hebrew ROM kindly provided by Gil Megidish. It comes from an Apple IIe motherboard 820-188-A. You might need that when renaming the video ROM.

The associated files are:
1. 8KB ROM: rom-a-8k-0
2. a.php: a small script to convert that ROM into a 16×16 character set png
3. hebrew-font.png: result of running a.php on the rom-a-8k-0 file.

Thank you so much for your help, I truly appreciate it.

Gil Megidish”

All of the associated files have been zipped and are available for download from:
