Default The curious case of the unflipped comma

Quite a few of the local people who have seen Shabbat Shelanu, Shabbat Shalom and can read Hebrew have raised a question about the Hebrew commas, specifically the one on the cover (although they're all the same).

I knew that it wasn't a typographical error or some weird software bug, but I asked the designer of Adobe Hebrew, John Hudson, about it. His response, and some type examples, are in a post on the book's blog.
