This is great! Not X-SAMPA, but nice nonetheless. Question: what is with the deadkeys? Option-backtick seems to be a rhotic hook deadkey, but I can't get it to combine with any vowels. What did you use to create it? (FYI, for other Mac users out there who are interested, I found these options for creating keyboard maps: site_id=nrsi&item_id=ukelele (already mentioned, I think) site_id=nrsi&item_id=keylayoutmaker ) Rebecca additionally said:
