Currently, "Everything" only ignores diacritics between single code points.

I'm working on an option to ignore punctuation for "Everything" 1.5.
This option would ignore combining diacritics.

I think this occurs because the Hebrew diacritics are characters by their own.
You press a key to write a character: א
Then, you press another key to apply the diacritic: אַ
To support this, you need to remove the diacritics characters.
Find of Firefox, still doesn't support this (there is no Match diacritics).
