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 [7]. JS Bangs scripsit:

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, -- Yitzik
