Subject: Hebrew Characters in PDFs

I tried to translate the following DocBook document (that contains some
Hebrew characters encoded as XML) into resultant format:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN"

<article id="index">
    <title>Hebrew Test 1</title>

    <section id="main">
        <title>Hebrew Test 1</title>
        This is English text and here is some &#1496;&#1511;&#1505;&#1496; 
Bye all!

You can find it and the GNU make makefile used to generate it here:


Now, all the HTML conversions went OK and displayed the Hebrew fine and in 
the right direction. The conversions to PDF, however all failed in one way or

openjade displayed the unicode codes of the characters instead of the 
characters themselves. Passivetex did not display any characters at all. 
FOP displayed strange hash-signs (#) instead of the characters.

Is there anything I'm doing wrong?
