Ignored at level 1, considered at level 2. From the 14651 data file:
<U05C1> IGNORE;<SHINP>;<MIN>;<U05C1> % HEBREW POINT SHIN DOT
<U05C2> IGNORE;<SINPT>;<MIN>;<U05C2> % HEBREW POINT SIN DOT

Re. collation, see UTS 10, and associated data files, and if you're
really interested, see ISO/IEC 14651 (sort of a parallel to UTS 10,
but different), and its data file.
