I'm on a work computer, XP, Firefox 4. And the Hebrew looks terrible. Is there a particular font I should have installed, or text-rendering setting?

I recommend SBL Hebrew.  Some like Ezra SIL.  Other than those, I don't think any of them looks good.  Of course, what you have is in some ways closer to the script which was used at one time.

Thanks.

If I get one of those installed, Biblia will default to it, then?

Edit: Ah, indeed. MUCH better, thanks!
