Hi, I have had this problem for quite a while. For some reason some words are combined strangely by biblia.com in BHS. It appears on screen that they are missing a space, but when I copy paste it on to a word processor it is just fine. Prime examples (though not the worst) in my screenshot 1.16 the last workgroup on the first line, and 2.2 second line third "word."

These should be "לִירוּשָׁלִַ֨ם֙   בְּֽרַחֲמִ֔ים" and "הַקְּרָנוֹת֙   אֲשֶׁ֣ר" instead (here exaggerated spacing to make my point).

I am using a macbook pro with OS X Maverick and Safari, and it looks the same in Chrome.

See also how some of the letters are on top of each others on the last line.

Hi Tommi,

I can't help you with your problem, but it would be helpful for others if you could re-upload your screenshot in PNG or JPG format. Most browsers don't support TIFF files. I can tell you that the spacing issue does not occur on Chrome, Firefox or IE on Windows.

Hi, I converted the screen capture into jpg format, and also annotated the problem points.
