[sword-devel] Zero Width Joiner in Hebrew modules?

To a greater or lesser extent, our Hebrew SWORD modules WLC, OSHB and MapM
make use of U+200D ZERO WIDTH JOINER.

None of these three modules make use of U+034F COMBINING GRAPHEME JOINER.

This might be more appropriate given that the codepoint was designed with
Biblical Hebrew in view.

Refer to Section 16.2 of the Unicode Standard version 6.2 – Core


Should we refer this observation back upstream?

Best regards,
