In doing some "research" for this question I came across this site
that "calculates" the numerical value of letters in Greek, Roman,
and Hebrew.

The interesting thing that I found is that in the Hebrew the letter w
is equal to 6.

But before anybody jumps to conclusions... including myself.. I
was wondering if one of the people in this list that know a great
deal more than I concerning languages.. if they could go to this
web site and "verify" its content.


Thanks for the help.
