[b-hebrew] Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Tanach enhancement

The (hexadecimal) Unicode constants for characters in a selected text 
from the Unicode/XML Tanach can now be easily obtained. Unicode 
constants are of the form &#xnnnn;* *and can be copied directly into 
conventional editors.  When the Unicode constants are inserted into HTML 
pages, they display the actual Unicode characters.

The Unicode constants for a particular text can be determined only in 
the Verses layout. Any desired Content (Accents, Vowels, Consonants, 
Morphology) may be used, however.   Select the Hebrew text in the usual 
manner of selecting text on the browser and release the mouse button.  
Because of browser differences, some experimentation in selecting the 
text and initiating the conversion may be necessary. This should pop up 
a window titled "Selected Hebrew text as Unicode constants" showing both 
the selected Hebrew text and the corresponding Unicode constants. If it 
doesn't, try a slow, single click on the selected text.

Please report difficulties.
