In the beginning, in 1963, the Hebrew Bible was
computerized for the first time in France by a truly
great scholar named
After Weil the same manuscript---the Leningrad
Codex---was computerized about 6 times so far, by
different groups of people or by individals, in
Belgium and the U.S. Weil also computerized the 3
other major codices----Aleppo, London, Cairo....
However, none of these teams included a computer
And none of them ever produced a national Hebrew
standard, in any of the countries where this happened.
So when the ISO 1987 Hebrew standard came into being,
it was the first and only public Hebrew standard
The vowels and 'accents' you have in Unicode are
supposed to be good enough to represent the Leningrad
Codex, because that's what everyone works with, in
Today's utterly fascinating history lesson.
