Re: Updated... Hebrew Translation!

Although it wouldn't be nicely programmed, The way I was thinking about it
was when you choose language, rockbox will check if there is another
built-in font with the same name of the language, and if so, will change to
it.

>From what I understand, That font is built-in into rockbox. couldn't it be
an external file? why is that a problem to implement? -on the otherhand,
inserting another built-in font would cause a jump in code size, and that's
the problem with doing so, correct?
