Aleph with right holam is not a plain text issue, and thusly not an unicode
A right holam on an aleph belongs between the aleph and the preceding
As far as plain text goes it can be displayed:
1. above the aleph, to the right.
2. between the aleph and a preceding consonant above a space.
3. above the preceding consonant, to the left.
If you explicitly want 1. then you are talking about rich text.
