I completely agree! And when you don't have LaTeX handy, or don't know how it works, one alternative on Linux is to use the UIM input method library with its X-SAMPA input method package. You can then input IPA characters using their X-SAMPA mnemonics. And most fonts available on Linux are full of IPA characters so you shouldn't have a problem (I like personally the DejaVu fonts). -- Christophe Grandsire-Koevoets. It takes a straight mind to create a twisted conlang.
