I've never heard of Kash before. Are you new to the list? If so, have you already introduced yourself? (I haven't been keeping up lately, so if I missed you're intro, I'm sorry.) Anyway, I like the look and (what I can figure out of) the structure of Kash, and would love to learn more about it. Do you have a website? If not, a short sketch of Kash for the list is in order. The symbol that you use in the more correct spelling of "Kash" comes out as a degree sign on my computer. Is it meant to be IPA /S/ as in "ship"? Perhaps you should stick with "sh" (or some other typewriter-friendly spelling) when posting to the list. Lookin' forward to finding out more about Kash! Matt.
