[b-hebrew] **** Correction to the Unicode/XML Westminister Leningrad Codex - 12 Aug 2008 ****

Samuel Arnet has observed that the upper and lower dots (puncta 
extraordinaria) in previous versions are exchanged.  A new version, 
dated 12 Aug 2008, has the dots in the correct position.  Example: Deut 
29:28 now has a long string of UPPER dots.

He has also noted text corruption in pasting text containing 
transcription notes into other applications, such as MS Word 2003.  The 
transcription note causes mis-ordering of the adjacent words and has 
also been observed in MS Word 2002, Mellel II, and NeoOffice.  A 
solution is sought, until then site users should be check that the 
pasted text containing transcription notes matches the browser text exactly.

Please report any difficulties you experience and revert to the previous 
version as necessary.
