This is a test page for checking the placement of the Hebrew diacritics Meteg and Patakh. The Meteg is the little vertical line and the Patakh is a little horizontal line. Both are placed under the first letter from the right. Their logical ordering is supposed to reflect their visual placement: If Meteg comes first, then it's supposed to be placed to the right of the Patakh, and vice versa.

Meteg first: הַֽבְרָכָה

Patakh first: הַֽבְרָכָה


This demonstrates that incorrect normalization of Dagesh may affect the display of a letter which has a Dagesh, a vowel and an accent:

Nun + Dagesh + Kamatz + Meteg: אָֽנָּֽה

Nun + Dagesh template + Kamatz + Meteg: אָֽנָּֽה

This is a similar problem with Shin and Sin dots.

Shin + Shin dot + Kamatz + Ethnahta: מָשָׁ֑ל

Shin with Shin dot template + Kamatz + Ethnahta: מָשָׁ֑ל
