The problem here seems to be that the text is being rendered in one of
the Microsoft standard fonts, which give readable Hebrew but still have
this problem with a full width space under holem. This is partly because
of the simple technology behind these fonts - although they could do
much better with a much narrower space. But the real answer is to use a
better font. The Microsoft font David does much better (without
cantillations), as do SBL Hebrew and Ezra SIL - at least on Windows.
I would recommend Troy to set up a style for Hebrew in his HTML
stylesheet with one of these fonts as default.
