That's simple: a) I've used it for many years now and can read and write it more fluently that IPA b) I am still using my beloved Emacs for reading this list and Emacs still has no decent Unicode support. Shame, but that's reality. So I often do not see what you guys are writing here in IPA, depending on the mood of my Emacs. c) Many mailers are still broken, seen in replies to UTF-8 posts where the characters often become garbage. FWIW, I can easily type Unicode in my browser. If I am using it. :-) **Henrik
