I actually have already written a C program to convert Phonetic mappings
like OLB and also DOS Hebrew. I can convert to ISO standard Israeli HEbrew
(which can be read in any Hebrew windows program) and back.
with this I can convert OLB easily to modern ISO Hebrew mapping. SILL does
not map standard Israeli ISO Hebrew. This causes limitations'
