Two Vowels on the same Consonent
« on: 2012-12-10, 04:49:45 »
When I put a vowel like Patah or Kamatz on a letter and a Hirik (as in Yerushalayim) - no problem. I can see both vowels.  When the order is reversed: First the Hirik and than the Patah or Kamatz, the Hirik is hidden behind the second vowel.  Is there any solution to this problem?

(My motivation: In cases of Ketiv, I want to show the vowels of the Kri on the Ketiv word, which brings this problem.  See for example the word Vayivaldu on Samuel II, Chapter 3 Verse 2. The Ketiv word is וילדו , without the vav, and I am trying to put both the Hirik and the Kamatz on the Yud.
