This is a minor point, but the H's should be 'ayins. Also, for those who 
aren't fluent in the transliteration system used on b-hebrew, the 
pronunciation would be something like yehoshua' (or the short form yeshua') 
and hoshia'. (If you're feeling especially ambitious, the ' at the end is a 
constriction of the throat.) Personally, I'd go with an imperfect form for "he 
shall save": yehoshia' or yoshia'.
