From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010917
BuildID:    2001091703

In Mozilla, the Hebrew text is shown as question marks. Other Hebrew web sites
work fine in Mozilla. This site displays OK with IE.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to https://www.bankpoalim.co.il:443/cgi-bin/poalwwwc

Actual Results:  All Hebrew text is rendered as question marks

Expected Results:  Hebrew should display as Hebrew

I am not sure what in the page creats this effect.
My first suspect was the strange looking style sheets (there are two of them)
which call for the non-stndard font "web hebrew ad". However, removing
everything from the srouce grabbed from IE (can't view source in Hebrew pages
with Mozilla, due to bug 86355) except for one table, the charset declaration
and the style sheets works OK.

So, that foult might lie with the sniffer, and some content given to NS only.
However, my JavaScript level is not high enugh for me to understand what exacly
is going on :-(

Here is the sniffer:
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript1.2">

var doc=0
var sty=0
function f_sniffer()

if(nameOf=='Microsoft Internet Explorer')

function chng_div(new_one)

For the record, the site works in IE6
dupe of bug 82929?

> dupe of bug 82929? 

It seems to be though the page has a sligthly different URL.
I guess they use the same page generation script. I will
keep this open for the time being because we need to
verify this problem with both URLs.

I mentioned in the other bug that they have an error in 
the meta charset spec syntax. However, I am no longer able to
correct the display by any one of the Hebrew encoding menu
items. I have not been able to view this or the otehr pages with 
IE 5.5, either. 

If anyone can display the current pages at this banking site, please 
let me know. Otherwise, I have to assume that the script generation 
at this site somehow mangles the ISO-logical Hebrew data.

hewbrew works with 2001112803, though the evil js is sill there
See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82929#c10

But the odd thing is that the patch to bug 91696 that I referenced there was
checked in before this bug was reported, so either this URL had a different
problem which is also now fixed, or else what I said there was wrong :-S
