=) I'm a Russian, but now live in Israel.. and I think what font
DejaVu - best of the best for Hebrew locale (in open-source *nix OSes
like Linux, *BSD because in Windows/Mac OS X may be other good
fonts..), _but_ we use open-source.. ;)
I tested Freeciv with
1. DejaVu Sans Condensed,
2. Vera Sans,
3. Liberation Sans fonts
and 2 locales
1. ru_RU.UTF-8
2. he_IL.UTF-8
  DejaVu Sans Condensed - very nice
  Vera Sans - not support
  Liberation Sans - nice
  DejaVu Sans Condensed - all work fine..
  Vera Sans - not support
  Liberation Sans - not support..
Freeciv screenshot with he_IL.UTF-8 locale + DejaVu Sans Condensed font =>

I think need to do DejaVu's fonts - default font in SDL-client..
I understand too what DejaVu can't support all locales, but can be
used for specific fonts for Chinese, Japanese and Korean locales...
