Ebisedian orthography facelift

Hi everyone,

After my Ebisedian informant recently picked up interest in Classical
Greek, he suddenly decided that the Roman orthography I made for
transcribing Ebisedian would look *much* better if I used iotas instead of
dotless i's for /i/. So I tried it out, and I must say I agree with him
(for once!).

You can see the results here:

For the PostScript-enabled folk, you can also view the PostScript versions
of these files by replacing the .pdf with .ps.

Thanks to the flexibility of LaTeX and my orthography-to-LaTeX convertor,
replacing these dotless i's with iotas were a breeze. It certainly looks
much better, and solves the problem of two dotless i's looking too much
like a 'u', etc.. And I must say, it does make Ebisedian look a lot more
stylish than before. Hopefully this will hasten the day when Ebisedian can
finally shed its freaklang reputation.  :-)


People say I'm indecisive, but I'm not sure about that. -- YHL, CONLANG
