    I've posted an image at of two words
    that illustrate one publisher's typographic distinction between vav with
    kholam khaser and kholam male. The top image (kholam male) is the third word
    of Exodus 12:15. The bottom (vav-kholam khaser) is the ninth word of Numbers
    15:40 (seventh word for those who don't count maqaf as a word break). The
    images were scanned from The Tanach, Stone Edition, Mesorah Publications,
    New York, 1996. The book includes the credit "Typography by CompuScribe at
    ArtScroll Studios, Ltd."
