"Bravo". Even though English is my mother tongue, I have never expected anyone to whole-sale translate anything, whether on the WEB or in hardcopy, into English. I can read and, with varying frequencies of inaccuracies, write German, French, Esperanto. I'm teaching myself Intertlingua (though it seems that may be surplanted by "2004"). I was delighted to realize that I can read & make at least some sense from Dutch. I believe some senability is required. Were I to publish a site in Tsalagi, then I'd not expect the data on that site to reach many people (speaking population for Tsalagi is about 25K individuals). _________________________________________________________________ Add photos to your messages with MSN 8.
