Ah. Umm... I think I may have phrased the question a little wrong. Although Iéraith is the 'Welsh-style' language, it's Elé I want the digraph for. I wanted a really good-looking one, and in my opinion Welsh has one of the most beautiful orthographies around. Thanks for the help. 'hutchies' Andalath-oi i-phailén! [Iéraith] Ghe'o mpodag pa' che'! [Khâche'] Yeses kéthes! [Elé] (In case you were wondering, the Elé phrase 'Yeses kéthes' means 'May you be with joy', and is the usual informal farewell. A more formal farewell is 'Lasinùré kéthêià ssaiá'- 'May blessings fall upon you like soft autumn rain', and the most formal is 'Tiàté sséthàs hessànàith iadd kelàdes'- 'May the waterfalls ever cast their rainbows on you'.)
