Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right list for this question. Sorry if it's not.

Why are there no Hebrew letters displayed in mapnik layer of the osm site?

1) a link to osmarender layer with some streets with Hebrew names:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=32.32298&lon=34.85931&zoom=16&layers=0B00FFF

2) a link to the same place, but rendered by mapnik:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=32.32298&lon=34.85931&zoom=16&layers=B000FFF
Note that the map doesn't show the street names.


the problem is not lack of unicode support, or lack of right-to-left support
in mapnik. because arabic seems to work well -

3) mapik layer with arabic street names:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=33.87579&lon=35.50073&zoom=16&layers=0B00FFTTT
note that arabic street names are displayed.

Thanks,
Tal
