Comparing images of different font of unfamiliar (for me)
script is very difficult.  Please tell me exactly what
character sequence requires more than positioning, and show
me images of only that sequence.

Anyway, for fonts that don't have OpenType tables for Hebrew
script, we can do nothing other than artificially adjusting
glyph position.  Have you seen any other application
rendering Hebrew well with that Arial font?
