In my case, it was the specific need for certain IPA characters that were either nonexistent or awkward to express in the Kirshenbaum system, but existed in X-SAMPA. Specifically: voiced and voiceless lateral fricatives, voiced palatal fricative, the curly-tail fricatives, velar approximant, "turned a", and apical and laminal diacritics. -- languages of Azir------> ---<>--- hmiller (Herman Miller) "If all Printers were determin'd not to print any email password: thing till they were sure it would offend no body, \ "Subject: teamouse" / there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
