    Right, I was also thinking about what else needs to be added. I'm
    looking at an old version of one of your proposals (likely out of date),
    and the only things I see in that one that I think need to be considered
    are the "KETIV/QERE" symbols you have listed. We do need to discuss
    those (on the Hebrew list).

    I'm looking to see if I have any other old proposals of yours. I would
    like to get a proposal together for Babylonian vocalization; that
    definitely needs to be encoded. Did you say there was also a
    Palestinian vocalization system to be done? We need to find out about
    them. Those proposals probably should be bounced off Prof. Dotan if
    possible; you said he was an expert on this.

    I have already done some pretty extensive research on Samaritan, and I
    am waiting to hear from my own experts regarding what I have for that so
    far (I need to send some email about that today); we'll see what we can
    come up with for that.
