The th character is the Icelandic "eth" where it represents the th sound of then - I like the way it looks and it gives it a Germanic-like feel, like the umlaut letters that basically correspond to German. The verbs as yet cannot be written without an auxiliary ("auxiliary" is the correct terminology, isn't it?) -Q. Read __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
