There seems an obvious question for Michael arising from this illustration:
With what characters -- Hebrew or Phoenician -- would you expect Birnbaum's Palaeo-Hebrew
to be encoded?
It seems to me that on visual grounds one would use Phoenician, but on textual grounds one
would use Hebrew. This is quite problematic, and I can see why Peter is unhappy about
having two equally valid ways of encoding the same text *represented by the same glyphs*.
