Forwarded from Launchpad #880224 on behalf of Amir E. Aharoni and Shahar Or:

  "Hebrew vowel diacritics are completely broken"

The concern raised is over the placement of the vowel diacriticals following ו (Vav) and י (Yod).  The user has confirmed that the issue is apparent in the sample PDF:


  "The Holam point is supposed to be above Vav, not to the left of it. The Dagesh point in Pe and Yud is hardly visible."

(Not being a native Hebrew reader, I cannot know or offer guidance personally on the correctness or accuracy of the point in question).
