Unicode is a 16-bit character set standard designed to encode most of the languages of the world. Unicode encodes the Hebrew letters, vowel points, cantillation marks, and punctuation specific to Hebrew. The vowel points and cantillation marks are combining characters in the Unicode terminology, which means that they are supposed to combine with letters without taking space in the horizontal direction. Unicode also specifies bidirectional behavior: directionality is a property of characters that is used by a bidirectional display algorithm.

Hebrew is encoded by Unicode character block 0590–05FF which includes letters, vowel and other pronunciation marks, cantillation marks, punctuation specific to Hebrew, and Yiddish digraphs. Unicode character block FB1E–FB4F encodes an additional diacritical mark, letters that are precombined with diacritical marks, the ligature aleph-lamed, wide variants of several characters, and a Hebrew form of the plus sign.

Mappings between Unicode and several 8-bit Hebrew encodings, including IBM Code Page 862, Apple’s MacOS Hebrew encoding, ISO 8859-8, and Microsoft’s Code Page 1255, are available from the Unicode Consortium web site.
