Hmm, A Sinaiticus font is already available on the net, but yours 
should be fun to check out as well.  There's that Qumran font from 
the fellow in Germany, but it has a very strange character mapping.  
I look forward to seeing yours.

About the only improvement I can see would be to use a consistent 
mapping for the Hebrew characters.  I noticed that the Lachish font, 
for example, has Aleph on the ) character (standard CCAT), while the 
Moabite has it on a.  It would be nice to be able to switch between 
them without having to change mappings.  Otherwise, they look great.
