Fist, ISO 693 states the language code for the Hebrew is 'iw' not 'he'.
Are you sure the above code is right?
Second, Python 2.4 have codec for 'iso-8859-8' but not for
'iso-8859-8-1'. We put aliases for '-i' and '-e' in misc/paths.py.in
lately but not '-1'. Is it common in Islael to use this notation? I
couldn't find 'ISO-8859-8-1' in the IANA charsets:

You may have to chose a proper charset name and register in the aliases.
