    Well, Doug, I see your point; different topics should be kept separate.
    But I changed the subject line precisely because the thread has shifted
    from discussion of compression to a general discussion of normalisation
    stability. But it has not shifted to a discussion of Hebrew. In fact
    Hebrew hasn't even been mentioned in this thread in relation to
    normalisation, although I did mention it in relation to the discussion
    of Korean precomposed characters. You have simply assumed that I am
    interested only in Hebrew, which is not true.
