Contesting PROD[edit]

The deletion of this article was proposed with the explanation: "Overly technical article which doesn't provide sources to demonstrate this single unnotable unicode character is deserving of its own entry."

I contest this. It is not supposed to be overly technical, and if it is overly technical, please say where exactly and i'll try to fix it.

And this character is very notable for people who need to type Biblical Hebrew and other languages that require intricate typography. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 09:38, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

of course, the prod was entirely misguided. A request for better sources and/or a merge suggestion may be arguable though. --dab (𒁳) 09:46, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

I proposed the article for deletion. I would suggest that not every character in the whole typographical spectrum is notable. Clearly this article, like every other article, needs to show some references to demonstrate the notability of its subject. Dylanfromthenorth (talk) 00:20, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Hebrew example broken?[edit]

All three texts are being rendered identically in both Safari on OS/X and Linux with Pango, and directly by a Pango test program. Since these are supposedly the best layout engines out there is the example actually right, or is this something they all implement wrong?Spitzak (talk) 21:41, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
