        FRONT   CENTR   BACK
        -R  +R  -R  +R  -R  +R
HIGH    i   y   ï   ü   û   u
MIDHI   e   ø   î       õ   o
MIDLOW  ë   ö   ê   ô   ã   å
LOW     æ       ä       a   â

It is assumed e.g. that ï ü can be used also for the vowels in English KIT
and FOOT respectively.

NB I'm not all happy with the unsystematic use of ^, but signs with ^ are
generallly more back and/or lower.  Perhaps ë and ê should swap places?
