What Semitists do varies -- within a Ph.D. class,
where they are teaching students to recognize many
older variant glyphs, they may give many handouts with
sets of glyphs...

Within publications, which are not for specialists in
early Canaanite, they do usually use square
Hebrew.........but as the availability of good and
cheap fonts increases, this current publication
practice might change some.....but that is a different
question from encoding practices---Elaine
