@nev those specific compound characters are usually used but I don't like using them because they are a relic of fixed width typewriter fonts and inconsistent with contemporary typesetting standards. The ײַ character has to be compound because of issues with the pasekh
@derpayatz oh that makes sense
@nev tbh I'm thinking about switching to never using combined characters even for stuff like אָ, but to be honest it means I have to really trust my font and in general I hate messing with the dots...
