I have tried to achieve the same with Arabic. See my posting to this
list of June 26 (thread: xetexref updated) and Jonathan's reply to it.
This explains the behaviour you describe, at least for XeTeX.
There is however an extension to ArabTeX which does this correctly, and
I assume it should be fairly easy to adapt it to colorize Hebrew vowel
under ArabTeX as well : see
