People who love diacritics and digraphs, I wonder if they ever
do more with the language in question, than type it out?

But then you have examples like Greek and Russian, where the B
sound of Greek, had become a V sound, so you had to recreate
letter for the B sound.

Why you have a B for V and what looks like a lower case B for B.

Me, I still wonder why V is done BH in Irish.

Irish the Irish Insular from (miniscule) using D with a dot, or
B with a dot for DH and BH (V).

Me, I write English using my own alphabet, but heh, when you
once sat down and wrote out the some 100 or more plus Greek
letter forms for Attican and Doric Greek and like..
Paleographics can be fun, but Calligraphy makes it beautiful.
And Illimination makes it art..
