    1. If the first letter is תֹּ do not mistake for ptr P-d298

    2. If the first letter is שֹ the holam dot is not written, as in שֹבַע / שובע, satiety, fullness (Psa 16:11)

  2. In the hasar haniqud: Do not mistake for every word of four letters the second one being ו. Look, for instance, at P-d035, P-d036, P-d037 and so on. Or look at S-d0684, S-d0685, S-d0686, S-d0689 and so on.
