I see that the DSSB module uses another font when a word (e.g. the tetragrammaton) is written in the so-called Palaeo-Hebrew script (see for instance 1Q11 frag. 2-5 l. 3).

This means that the text is somehow tagged as Palaeo-Hebrew script, and I would like to search for this feature.

I've looked in Accordance help and in DSSB readme, but I couldn't find anything.

Is there a way to search for it? Is the Palaeo-Hebrew tagging exhaustive?

Thanks!! :-)

I am pretty sure Accordance only displays the divine name in the "paleo-Hebrew" script. As far as I know, the other places the script is used among the DSS are complete fragments, not individual scattered words. These fragments have "paleo" in their titles:

You will note that they are rendered in square script in Accordance.

EDIT: whoops, fixed the link

Sorry, but there is no way to search for Paleo characters as distinct from Yehudit.
