Mellel handles all of these beautifully, and it also has some interesting integration with BookEnds that might make academic citation less of a chore.

I keep hearing that Mellel handles Hebrew better than any other word processor. I have been using both Mellel and Nisus Writer Pro for a few days and am planning to buy only one of them. For general purposes Nisus wins hands down, but I will need it for complex documents that include Hebrew and other RTL languages. So, what exactly can Mellel do with Hebrew that Nisus can't?
Here's a sample from NWP where I pasted a verse from the BHS. Pointing looks good (SBL Hebrew font), as does text wrap. The palette shows where you can easily click from LTR to RTL text.
Other than this I haven't used it for any extensive Hebrew; Mellel has been my preference.
