That's weird, but not pertinent.  In this case, the problem is that I
am fairly certain that textfmt accepts input only in ASCII, not even
ISO Latin 1, much less whatever character set Hebraic text is placed
into files in.

You will probably have to replace textfmt, entirely.

Well, the thrust of my question there was more "someone's bundling us
with something?  Cool..."  But in this case it's pertinent: was the
*app* designed to deal with Hebrew?
