Ah, but you see, that's not CXS, that's Tristandard (Tristan-dard, not Tri-standard, although there may be at least three ways to interpret it. :)) Fauxnetix, in which "r" represents "however you pronounce your English rhotic" and vowel + r represents "however you pronounce allegedly-rhotacized vowels" - at least, whenever the detail is not germane to the discussion. Thus, "harT" represents /hA:T/ in AusE and /ha`r\T/ or thereabouts in GenAmE.
