BibleWorks and Logos both use their own TrueType fonts. The next version of
Logos will be shifting to Unicode, but I don't know what their plans are for
the moment considering the holes in Unicode Hebrew support.

There is a mailing list that discusses font issues in regard to biblical
languages. See

There will soon be a web site: www.biblical-languages.org
but it looks like they still don't have the site up yet. But they did get
Apache installed the other day, so perhaps there will be some content there
