They have an existing font, SemiticaDict from Linguist Software, that has
been used in the Logos Library System. I'll check with my correspondents
and the guys at Logos to see how they are using this glyph and what it is

It would be nice if liturgical changes could only be made official by
having them hand-written on vellum, in Latin, and delivered by
sandalled friars travelling on foot. Then there would only be a handful
of changes in any one lifetime, and I could probably keep up with them.
