Studying theology and using Linux is proving to be a road filled with

Attached are the modified symbols-file (symbols/il) along with the modified
symbols.lst, rules/base.lst, rules/base.xml in the tarball. Also a .diff is
attached which contains the patch of the four files as needed on the X.org X
Window System Version 6.9.0.
My wish is that this layout will become integrated into the main tree of the
X-Server. The primary differences to the standard hebrew layout (basic or
si1452) are documented briefly in the symbols file (symbols/il).
