Query: Hebrew word processing

Marcia Falk's picture

What program are people using to type Hebrew with nikkud on a Mac? I've heard about Nisus and Mellel but don't know which is preferable or whether there are any other recommendations. Ideally I'd like a program that can handle Hebrew and English side-by-side on a page, but this isn't essential, so long as one can switch back and forth between Hebrew and English within the same document.

Many thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Marcia, I have used Nisus since 1993. I stand by it. Not only does it do Hebrew and nikkud and right-to-left very well, it is an excellent academic's word processor.
