This is good advice, but while I can see it is easy enough to DISPLAY text
in Unicode Hebrew, what I do not understand at present is how one can WRITE
it with any sort of speed, in a word processor, for example. I presume it
does not entail typing in the full Unicode code for every character or
diacritical point. - ?
