    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 (see also, 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.
