Vyääh (Vya:a:h, for those of you cannot see
that HTML coded letter for the a/omlaut) has its own
native script, a bit like Hangul - with influences
from Japanese and Khmer.
To date, the only thing on the net I can offer (as I'm
in the arduous process of trying to make a webpage) is
This says "hauskk'tuloa: Ma:tt-le'hti L" (or, if you
can see the HTML coded letters, "hauskk'tuloä
Mätt-léhti ì"), or "welcome to
Matt's webpage". Note that there are other forms of
the Vyh'n script that I haven't shown in this sample
Hopefully, over the coming weeks/months I'll get
around to putting more samples onto the web.
Christophe, you should offer your Itakian native
script here! It's quite beautiful in appearance -
although I'm not one for "horizontal" scripts (ie,
like Latin letters which go side-by-side); I sort of
prefer the "vertical" scripts (ie, like Hangul).

Great stuff seeking new owners in Yahoo! Auctions!
