[Israel.pm] convert old DOS Hebrew encoding

Just wanted to close the loop on this and let you know that I published a
CPAN module for this extended DOS encoding of Hebrew (including vowels and
dageshim). Here it is:
The encoding table itself is at the end of the code in hex. The first
character of each line is the 8-bit DOS Hebrew encoding. The rest of the
characters are the unicode equivalent.
*e1 d1 bc* beis
means that the byte *e1* (hex) in the DOS encoding converts to the 2 bytes:
05*d1* 05*bc* in unicode (the leading unicode "05" for Hebrew is inferred)/
The last part is just a comment that this represents a beis with a dagesh
(oops sorry for the ashkenaz transliteration)
I am still looking for more information about the origin of this encoding
and what programs used it, so I can add that to the documentation.
