Vy&auml;&auml;h (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 at This says "hauskk'tuloa: Ma:tt-le'hti L" (or, if you can see the HTML coded letters, "hauskk'tulo&auml; M&auml;tt-l&eacute;hti &igrave;"), 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 unfortunately. 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).
