I'm deadly sorry for the mess I've caused by sending a UTF-8 message to the
List. It seems it is even more cruel to Cyrillics than it was to the Georgian ;)
I give up sending anything Unicoded to our dear List. I'll resend the Ancient
Romanian message here in 1251 (Win Cyr), and/or to the Romconlang in UTF-8
(Yahoo is more friendly to encodings), if it is necessary.

It is indeed a yer (tvërdyj znak). I think it was used the same way it does in
Bulgarian: to denote .

I've left the book at home. It gives the text in modern Latin spelling too, and
the translation. If you want, I'll send it later when I come back home.
With my best regards,
