You could use Һ (, for example, which is used for /h/ in several Cyrillic-using languages. Or, if you're not absolutely wedded to Г as /g/, you could do the Ukrainian thing (sort of) and use Ґ for /g/ and Г for /h/. Or, as Dana pointed out, consider using Ҳ; according to Wikipedia ( ), it's /h/ in a number of languages that use it. Cheers, Philip -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
