Nick, the SL client seems to accept pasted Unicode text. I don't think the
SL program has a way to type these, but you can set up third-party
programs to act as "alternate keyboards." Programs like Keyman
(http://www.tavultesoft.com/) can be useful in this regard.

Sadly, the SL client (in the Notecard and Chat/IM) does not obey
right-to-left text... it inverts it. So your Hebrew, you will have to type
in reverse. Hopefully LL will attend to this problem in a future release.
