It is a special font created to print this edition (see the Foreword of 
BHS, p. XI, section 1). I do not think there is an exact digited version of 
it. Linguist's Software (http://www.linguistsoftware.com/) has very good 
Hebrew fonts and its Hebraica II font has been licensed to produce the 
Biblia Hebraica Quinta. You can look also at the new font of the Society of 
Biblical Literature (http://www.sbl-site.org/Resources/default.aspx) and at 
the different fonts listed on my web pages (page 23), see below.

Best wishes,
