Not for me. I cannot read CPA, so currently I'm ignoring it until I feal people use it.

No, please not. I'd rather use a common standard than a private version. I did some programming in computational linguistics at uni and people were using a version of X-Sampa, too. It's a good thing to be able to communicate. And I really don't like chaos with different coding systems. **Henrik
