I understand that the presence of a maqaf between two words affects the
cantillation, singing, of the words. But does it also affect the
vowelization? Specifically, is A-B vowelized differently than A and B
Currently the Unicode/XML Tanach always displays maqafs, regardless of
content type (Accents, Vowels, Consonants). Future versions will
probably not show the maqaf for the Consonantse. At issue is whether
the maqaf should be shown for the Vowels.
