More Light and Levity: Tau, Chet, and Heh

ת, ח, ה are very similar looking to the untrained eye, and according to modern typeset. At first glance, all three seem to be made of Vau, ו, and Dalet, ד, squished together like concertina. This is true (almost) for Tau ת and Heh ה, But Chet ח, you will see, is not the same.…
