It will use the Hebrew script as well as the Latin script, once i get around to it :) . I'm probably going to use superscript bars over the letters, like the yiddish F, as the equivalent of the cedillas. For /Z/ i might use a barred shin, which i've seen in Ladino. I like the digraphs and tri(?)graphs in Yiddish, but i prefer having one letter for one sound. -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
