Headings and highlighted text, when stripped of their formatting, are
still legible, and paragraph boundaries can usually be indicated in
One useful litmus (or lackmus) test for this Hebrew example would be
whether the text in question is still legible, with its original
meaning, when reduced to plain text representable in today's Unicode.
If the special Ketiv/Qere handling is needed only because It Is The
Word, and This Is How It Was Written, then this is probably a
paleographic distinction and out of scope for plain text. If it
genuinely changes the spelling, that is another matter.
