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!! :-)
