If you use a Mac, and find yourself using some Java based Chat Applet, you will notice you can’t write Hebrew. The keyboard input refuses to even switch to Hebrew.
I googled for a solution, and found none. In the end, I found the solution myself. Here’s what you need to do, to get it working:
- In spotlight, search for “Java Preferences”, and click to run this utility.
- You will see a list of JVM versions: 1.6.0, 1.5.0, and 1.4.2. Simply switch to 1.4.2 and click “Save”
- You are done! Remember to completely close your browser, before you try again.
