Have any of you Mac users had any success installing Greek and Hebrew Fonts that can then be used within Word 2011? I seem to be shooting blanks here.

Hebrew is a problem with Word for Mac due to the fact that the program struggles with Right to Left. Greek works fine for me, just copy and paste without any issues. I am using Word 2008 for Mac.. not 2011.

If you plan to do any work with Hebrew on the Mac, I recommend Mellel. According to traffic on the Microsoft support forums the Mac Business Unit has no intention of ever supporting Hebrew and other right-to-left languages on the Mac OS. This was stated by a forum MVP who claimed to have attended strategy meetings prior to the release of Mac Office 2011. The stated reason is that there is not enough money in it for MS.
