It looks like MS decided to pull the download.  This isn't a big deal 
because the only module we had recommended using this for was the 
WebstersDict module.

We have and shall continue to recommend using Code2000 for the BHS.  Sans 
Serif fonts for Hebrew aren't very legible to folks who are used to 
working with Hebrew for Biblical stuff.  If you're used to reading modern 
Hebrew in newspapers or such, that's a different matter.  So Arial Unicode 
MS has always looked pretty horrible for the BHS.  I don't believe it even 
has the cantillation points for that matter.
