Yes. The Vine script on Omniglot is just a code of the Latin alphabet, with each letter corresponding to a Latin letter (plus a few ligatures). Carsten's alphabet not only looks better, there's also a well-defined phonology behind it, rather than being a code of Latin. It is a marvellous achievement! Greetings, Jörg.
