My bad. But I would nevertheless use rather ı than ɪ for
aesthetic reasons. In IPA of course, I *would* use ɪ!

Yeah, I also wanted to use them, but then I didn't find any
place where this would fit. Also, there isn't a capital
version of it as far as I know.

I am not a native speaker, mind you!

Yeah, most probably. AFM ideolect, I think I even merge /A/
Vowels are always a peculiar topic, anyway. I took the list
of sounds from my German-English dictionary, assuming that
they've got the sounds right regarding phonemicity.

Of course it would be. Ah well ... As for the caps, they are
a nice feature of our script I think. Heh, in an uncial
font, there are only capital letters ;-) Oh, and then,
there's also alphabet 26 or how it's called. Search Omniglot
for that. It looks like the font they used for McD's
