Hm; /j/ is already in use to represent [Z]. /h/ on the other hand is hardly used, but how stupid would it look to retain the German /sch/ in an Italian-inspired orthography and have /schtalu/. I also think that that isn't reasonable because the whole point of changing the orthography was to forget the days of evil Austria... -------ferko Ferenc Gy.
