The cantillation marks are pretty much okay: they will not be re-ordered
during normalisation. There are three that should ideally have a
postpositional combining class (see
http://www.tiro.com/transfer/SBLappendixB.pdf), but the rest are fine.
The problem is with the vowels.

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.
