So that's the reason why FrathWiki didn't let me enter ị̄ (i-macron with underdot) but always made ị̄ out of it (i with macron *above* the dot and dot below). Muke, in case you read this, could you *please* have a look at the feature Benct described above?

I've seen đ instead of ð before, and also b or p for þ. Regards, Carsten -- "Besonvenyonangang ayena nudeng inunsegasyēna." -- Segakāryo Litayarim Pinena, Dirlem 20, 2316 ya 06:56:21 pd Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 03:54:14 pm
