Hebrew niqqud and cantillation marks aredisplayed as separate characters instead of on the letters. This issue is OS X specific.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Copy some Hebrew text with niqqud and/or cantillation marksto the clipboad, for example:
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ
2. Paste into any LibreOffice component.
Each mark appear as a separate character.
The marks should be rendered on the letters.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
After further investigation, the problem appear with the default Arial MS Unicode font, but not with other fonts such as Lucida Grande. See attached screenshots.

Is this issue LibreOffice specific? What happens if you try the same text and font in TextEdit, for example?

The same text using the same font in TextEdit is also rendered incorrectly. However, when pasting the plain text LibreOffice defaults to the broken Arial Unicode MS while TextEdit defaults to Lucida Grande which renders correctly.

Confirmed under MacOS 10.6.8 using v184.108.40.206 Build ID: fcd3838c4097f7817b5b3984fd88a44e1edd8548. I am seeing what is illustrated in the incorrect rendering attachment for Arial Unicode MS. Problem does not occur with Liberation Mono.
Status set to NEW. It is unclear to me whether this is an issue with LO or with the Arial Unicode MS font. Summary amended for clarity.

The problem is definitely with the Arial Unicode MS font. This can be verified by pasting in some hebrew text into Text Edit (or LO). With Lucida Grande or SBL Hebrew (etc) the text displays correctly, however it is badly rendered in Arial Unicode MS.
Thus my question (as an end user) would be how to change LO's behaviour such that Arial Unicode MS is not the default font for such text?
