    Peter Constable has written this up and submitted a proposal to the UTC.
    Additional documentation of the problem is included in the manual for the
    new SBL Hebrew font, and will be available from the Society of Biblical
    Literature website shortly (I'll provide the download information when the
    files are online).

    If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
    are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
    who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
    Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
