No functional losses with old font
Most, if not all, changes in the new font were accent placement adjustments to avoid accents overlapping with vowel points.
I don't know enough about how fonts are created to even guess at why the changes caused problems.
how to insert emphasis mark?
I am running OpenOffice Writer under Windows 7, and have installed the bwhebb font. But I cannot find how to generate the tiny < sign above a letter, to indicate which syllable receives the vocal emphasis ("accent").
For example, the Hebrew words "melek" (king) and "eved" (servant) both carry the emphasis on the first syllable, not the last. Most textbooks mark this with a < above the first consonant.
Can this be done with BWHEBB?
