I'm curious, though, how come David CLM has excellent (as far as my
simple used cases are concerned...) niqqud placement, while Frank Reuhl
CLM dosn't. Is it simply a matter of work that needs to be done - that Maxim
invested manual work on this for David, but not yet on Frank Reuhl? Or is
there some reason why niqqud in Frank Reuhl is somehow more difficult
than in David?
By the way, Maxim, I've recently converted my document on Hspell's
spelling standard to using Culmus fonts, and I'm really enjoying it -
the result actually looks better than it did when using Microsoft's
fonts, and the niqqud (on the David font) is also better than I had
with Microsoft's font. So thanks again for all your hard work on Culmus!
