The Hebrew pages here are inadequate as a text of Unicode as they
consist of only unpointed modern Hebrew. For a much fuller test of
Hebrew support including vowels, cantillation marks etc, see
http://www.mechon-mamre.org/c/ct/c0101.htm (see also
http://www.mechon-mamre.org), and Genesis chapter 1 if you need a
translation. Probably none of the nasty vowel combinations we were
looking at on this page, I haven't checked what this site does about
them in passages where they do occur.
