Dear Dave,

It is not a problem of fonts:
- Some VB controls support UCS-2 unicode and others do not.
- PostgreSQL odbc driver does not support UCS-2 yet.

UCS-2 has been added to the odbc to do list.
http://developer.postgresql.org/todo.php * Unicode(UCS-2) support

So, even if odbc supported UCS-2 Unicode, I am not sure
pgAdmin2 would be able to display Hebrew data because of VB limitations.

The only really UCS-2 compatible $W product seems to be Access2K.

A solution would be to use Windows Hebrew encoding server-side in PotsgreSQL. 
I don't know if is workable.

Regards,
Jean-Michel
