Ah - missed that point. I assumed the quotes were part of the Hebrew text.
The bracketed content below should be green:
 <p>["]MIYALAHSURE[Y]" is the Hebrew word for "Jerusalem."</p>

Come to think of it, I don't know whether Hebrew has quotes.
Suppose they do, and suppose I render them as {}
where the } comes "first" (i.e., on the right) and the { comes "last" (i.e.,
on the left)
Then the bracketed content below should be green:
 <p>{MIYALAHSURE[Y}] is the Hebrew word for "Jerusalem."</p>
