Yiddish style guide. Non YIVO Standard
What do you think? https://github.com/derpayatz/yiddish-reader/blob/master/style-guide.md
@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
@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...
