Samuel Arnet has pointed out that an extraneous holam appears in the
text, most notably in the tetragrammaton.
This is a known problem with the SBL Hebrew font, version 1.11 .
From John Hudson, 11/4/2005 8:39 PM :
"There is a bug in the current version of the SBL Hebrew font (version
1.11 build 001) that causes a holam to appear on a letter when it is
follows by a vav + a vowel mark. So, for example, in the sequence
yod+vav+qamats a stray holam appears on the yod.
We are currently testing a fix for this bug, and hope to have a new
build of the font ready for download from the SBL site very soon."
To see if you experience this problem, examine the tetragrammaton for a
holam above the first he. If you don't have it, stay with your current
SBL Hebrew font.
