And I don't understand how you are making this distinction between writing two words
separately being plain text and combining them being not plain text. In what way is it not
plain text? Why couldn't it or shouldn't it be plain text?
If I write, using Latin letters, 'YaHoWaiH' as a combination of the words YHWH and adonai,
for instance, in what way is the former not just as much plain text as the latter? What
makes the case fundamentally different for Hebrew?
I'm just trying to understand the basis of your insistence that traditional Ketiv/Qere
combinations are not plain text. I can understand how and why one might implement them not
as plain text, but this is not the same as determining, a priori, that they are not and
cannot be plain text.
