I've read all of these, and even found and fixed some problems they
don't mention (e.g., the yudit.properties file sets data and font
paths to something Unixy, like /usr/share/yudit or
/home/gsinai/build/share/yudit).  It still shows only hex numbers
instead of text in R2L languages.

A Windows port that does not automatically use the installed fonts
is not really a port, IMO.  Strangely, I didn't find anything on the
Internet that would help; evidently, there aren't too many Windows
users of Yudit.
