I'd be interested to see something about that, Christophe... I have one that I'm alpha testing but it's not for public consumption (like my homegrown stenographic system). I use it for my own notes and for now I'm using it as I put together my conlang website, but in public I usually use X-SAMPA with the usual Kirshenbaum modifcations: & for { mainly. I've used and seen X-SAMPA, Kirshenbaum and my own so much that I can move freely between the three and it doesn't bother me - I'm sure most of us can move between X-S and K. I don't mind which one someone uses as long as it's known which system is being used and the more esoteric usages are defined at least in context. Cheers, Eamon
