Attn: Dutch speakers and/or html gurus

A while back I mentioned I was having trouble interpreting the Du. based
spelling system (vintage 1900s) of a regional Indo. language source.  It's
now up on my website--
(that's kai_spelling). Have I seriously misinterpreted the Dutch? What in
particular would the author have meant by "hiaat"?? Comments are requested
(privately might be better).

Also, others may want to take a look at the HTML source; it's my first
effort using the new computer, which seems to do strange things.  A
Validator site found lots of oddities-- didn't like &lsquo; , &rsquo; etc.
Also, it said the Unicode numbers were not recognized (though they display
for me....)-- is it because they're decimal, not hex? .  Also, is it really
necessary to specify FONT all over the place?? etc.  I really don't
understand, and would like to clean this up if I can, for future work.  I
will appreciate comments, even vicious or scornful ones...

Thanks, Roger.
