Looks good to me (but Mohsen should tell).

Btw, there's some strange problem in displaying one label of the
hebrew-biblical-tiro input method: the character u+05ba (inserted by
Shift-5 key) is displayed as a blank rectangle.  It looks like my
fonts have no glyph for this character, but then why don't we display
this like any other glyphless character: as a hex code inside a small
rectangle?  That's what I get if I insert this character into a
buffer, but somehow the way we display it in the keyboard layout (and
in the "C-u C-x =" display under "decomposition") behaves differently.
Why is that?
