Thanks. Although I'd prefer non-web-based tools, this is better than nothing (not meant to insult your work, of course :) ).
BTW, as a composer of music in the 21st Century I would be foolish not to at least be aware of the tools of the times (personally, they help immensely). I see no reason not to extend that to conlanging. Those of you who don't agree with me have your reasons, I'm sure, but if we were all the same the world would be really boring.
