g0miileg0's orthography isn't among the most aesthetically appealing I've
seen, but beyond the use of "0" as a letter there's nothing much I actively
dislike. Pete's system, OTOH, includes stuff like _euohfv_, which makes French
look downright stunning by comparison.
PS of my own conlang orthographies, the one I find most aesthetically
appealing is Meghean's. How can anyone fail to love the look of _Gheao Chaino
PPS That means "I have heard to word of the Lord Creator". The pronunciation
is [Zaw xajno Sojmjaro SeDewm].
PPPS That means I did decide that /s/ get's realized as [S] before /j i e/.
I'll indicate this on the webpage tonight, or so I hope.
