And a new signature, too
Testing for a new signature.

Ah. There's an extra toggle that needs to be switched.

Re: testing signature font
They show up exactly the same on mine. (Firefox on Mac Powerbook G4).

Re: testing signature font
On my computer last night, the fonts were more geometric looking, and the vowel symbols (?) appeared directly below particular letters.

This morning, on my computer at work (Firefox running on Linux) both styles still look identical, but now the first letter (the one on the right) has little squiggles on the parts on either side of the main part of the letter, and the vowel symbols (?) appear between letters (although still below them).

There is no Hebrew at all in the post to which I am responding.

Re: testing signature font
The two fonts in the screencap do look different. The bottom example is more like classical Hebrew, while the top looks more geometric, like it's trying to look modern or something.

The phrase in your signature (as I am now looking with my Mac) is closer to the top font, although not identical.

Maybe later tonight I'll try to figure out how to do a screen capture and show you.

Re: testing signature font
Sorry to bring this up again, especially since I think that the problem is that my mac and my linux machine do not have the correct fonts. I suspect that to display the fonts correctly I need to download some sort of package.

Anyway, here is what the screencap in your post looks like:

It looks identical to your screen cap, as it should.

Now here is what your signature looks like on my mac at home:

and here is what it looks like on my linux machine at work:

I don't know if this helps, or even if anyone cares at this point. Like I said, I suspect that both the computers I use don't have the correct packages installed. I also have trouble with Greek characters on the Wikipedia site.
