"So Rev 19:6 ALLHLOUIA with daeresis over the iota means that this?
word has five syllables: AL-LH-LOU-I-A, not the four AL-LH-LOUI-A?
that it would normally have."

I would have thougth that ALLHLOUIA has five syllables either way and that 
the diaeresis indicates that OU is the diphthong rather than UI.
