My Hebrew-English translation project is proceeding apace, but I just found out that the (commercial!) DavidMF font I am using does not have a yod-dagesh glyph, though the SBL Hebrew I use in other places does.  So here is a workaround (this would work for any similar lack-of-glyph problem you may have):

% The 'David' font I'm using doesn't have a glyph for yod-dagesh :(  So I have
% to fake it.  Fortunately, XeTeX does a good job of nequda placement...
