Why on earth would there be a barred-h in a Korean font??? BTW: barred-h is my favourite [x] symbol partout. In fact "x" sucks rocks; the form makes me think of it as a "nothing" symbol, something crossed out or so. I have been known however to use "x" as a substitute for the wedge diacritic, even before becoming aware of the Esperantists' x-notation. And as a substitute for gamma when transcribing Mongolian. The letter transcribed gamma in Mong. is mostly silent (rather behaves like Maltese gh<barred> actually!), which probably is why I could live with it... /BP ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ B.Philip Jonsson <bpj@...> <melroch@...> Solitudinem faciunt pacem appellant!
