- UYIP with Unicode, where Unicode
Yiddish documents are catalogued, and where information about Unicode,
especially as it relates to Yiddish, is available. Visit http://www.uyip.org/unicode/.
- Other Mailing Lists of Interest:
- RFC 1555:
Hebrew Character Encoding for Internet Messages describes a
protocol for transmitting Hebrew in the ISO-8859-8 character set.
This encoding can only contain Hebrew letters without vowels, and
therefore does not support Yiddish.
- Ulrich Greve's Free Downloadable
Yiddish Software site has great, original software with the
Yiddish language featured front and center. Examples: a Yiddish OCR
program, a Yiddish-English
Dictionary program, etc.
- Days and Months (Yiddish Localization Information)
- Phonetic Yiddish Keyboards (QWERTY-based): http://www.shoshke.net/uyip/keyboards.htm. Join the UYIP mailing list for a discussion of QUERTY-based phonetic keyboard designs for Yiddish information processing.
- Hebrew Keyboards: http://www.uyip.org/keyboards.html. Join the UYIP mailing list for a discussion of keyboard designs for Yiddish information processing.
- Raphael Finkel's Yidishe Shraybmashinke (Yiddish Typewriter), a
tool for Composing Yiddish through the Web, and also for translating
between various character sets, document formats, and encodings, at http://www.cs.uky.edu/~raphael/yiddish/makeyiddish.html
. It lets you compose a page of Yiddish text, typed in
transliteration, in a number of formats, including images (GIF's) that
you can immediately see. It also can produce Unicode documents in
Windows Hebrew Code Page 1255, MacOS Hebrew, Unicode UCS-2 and UTF-8
formats, and PostScript files. A heymish Yiddish font is also
provided. A truly wonderful resource. Thank you Raphael! Lang lebn
zolt ir, Rafoyl!
- Unicode Hebrew Code Block (PDF)
Alphabetic Presentation Forms (PDF), including forms used in standard
Yiddish orthography. (Note: these forms are generally to be used for
compatibility; modern applications should use composition of characters from the Hebrew code block.)
- The combinations of Unicode characters needed for Yiddish according
to its Standardized Orthography are shown here: http://www.uyip.org/combinations.html
- The Unicode characters for Hebrew digraphs needed for Yiddish are
shown here: http://www.uyip.org/digraphs.html
- (The rest of the characters needed for Yiddish are just the 22
Hebrew letters, and 5 final letter forms. Not shown, but available
from many sources; see further below for the Unicode table.)
- A general guide to Hebrew information processing, primarily intended for those dealing with the Hebrew language, is at:
- Nir Dagen's Review of
Hebrew-language Support in Browsers.
- More resources to come; stay tuned....
