:-) You're fortunate; the Romanization for my attempts so far gets pretty yucky. I'm not *too* fond of digraphs, but it was either that or move to funky diacriticals that I haven't figured out how to produce on my computer. <guilty look> What *is* a gridded script? And for Chevraqis, I cribbed off Mongolian Phags-pa *and* Korean (I figured the conscript was designed by a Qenaren, not evolved, so just *maybe* the designer had some knowledge of phonetics/phonology and came up with similar shapes...). I am a cheapskate. When I get back to Ithaca I think I'll play around with my art tablet and see if I can come up with some "fonts." YHL
