I downloaded culmus fonts.  It seems "David CLM" font is
quite good.  And, while testing with that font, I found a
bug in the current Emacs code.  I'll fix it soon.  Please
wait for a while.

Thank you.  Another problem I found with Dejavu Sans is that
that lookup tables implementing "mark" feature for hebrew
don't have proper LookupFlag to ignore previous combining
marks (GDEF class 3).  I think that's why it can't compose
two or more diacricals correctly.
