But isn't part of the problem that only a limited number of fonts are
available right now that can properly render the MT with full pointing?
So maybe what Karl is experiencing has to do with the complexity of

site specifies SBL Hebrew as the only option, don't most browsers allow
you to override the font specifications of the page you're viewing? That
