Where's this (La)TeX/METAFONT-for-Conlangers one? And why does it deserve bracketing, slashing, hyphenation, prepositions and capital letters when the others don't? By rights it ought to be texmetafontconlang. I guess it's because of the superiority of (La)TeX :P I'll assume Omega, Lambda, Gamma, ConTeXt and other derivatives are on-topic too :) And (conj. not name) also wrote: >Grrr... my French heart is terribly wounded by this sentence! ;))) Seriously, >you probably hate more the American way of teaching French than French itself >(which has little to do with what those know-it-alls pretend it's like).
