Strange, this is exactly the point of it I don't like! To me, it's a mixture between spelling according to pronunciation but keeping the traditional spelling conventions for the representation of individual sounds. How come you're talking about 'pseudo-Spanish' pronunciation. I'd rather call it the Latin pronunciation. After all, it's still the Latin alphabet, so the old Roman's pronunciation of the letters still is the standard, if there is any. g_0ry@_^s: j. 'mach' wust
