[b-hebrew] Daniel 12:10 and Jeremiah 22:7

In my bible W-HA-MA-SKIYL-IYM of Dan. 12:10 is written with a yud  
between the K and the L. Indeed, there is no dagesh in the letter L,  
since the dagesh hints, in my opinion, to the xiriyq and is therefore  
not needed in plene writing. See, by contrast, the word $IQUC in the  
next verse.
The fact that there is no dagesh in the letter T of MA-$XIT-IYM in  
Jer.22:7 means, in my opinion, that a yud used to be there at the  
time the dgeshim were put into the biblical text, but is now lost.
