Fix the fonts.  Adobe has standard for naming glyphs in postscript fonts.


    Unicode     Glyph name
    05BE            afii57645    HEBREW PUNCTUATION MAQAF
    05C3            afii57658    HEBREW PUNCTUATION SOF PASUQ
    05D0            afii57664    HEBREW LETTER ALEF
    05D1            afii57665    HEBREW LETTER BET

LCMs should target these glyph naming scheme, than any conforming font
is immediately usable.
