I still wonder whether I should transcribe <á> as a long 'a', <é> as a long 'e' and <ll> as a geminate 'l' etc. or if I should transcribe it phonetically and write 'au', 'je' and 'tl'. And then of course, there's <ó> which would get 'ou', i.e. the 'o' above the consonant and the 'u' under it. Or should I combine 'o' and 'u' into a single glyph 'ou'? That refers to writing Icelandic with Tahano Nuhikamu course, but it also goes for writing Icelandic with Tengwar, because both writing systems are abugidas ;-) Regards Carsten On a side note: I wonder how you write for example [e:] (the thing that looks like long 'e', or rather twice the diacritic for 'e', is 'ai' according to the Unicode names) and multiple vowels in succession in Devanagari, e.g. like in <Kilauea>. Also, what are the Candra forms good for? And Nukta and Avagraha [sp?]? Omniglot doesn't say anything about those. Benct?
