    Having found the following program exceedingly useful in various =
conlang pursuits, I offer the webpage for Keys to the conlang community. =
 Well, all the people on this list anyways and that should get things =
rolling well enough. :-)

http://iap.ethz.ch/users/szp/keys/index.html

    I have previously used this program for:
        -    writing in Hungarian
        -    writing in Esperanto (with the diacritic marks, without =
supersignoj)
        -    trying various methods of using Tengwar for writing =
comfortably
        -    trying various methods of using Sanskrit for writing =
comfortably

    Some other things that come to mind are using it to write in Klingon =
(have digraphs substituted with the single Klingon font letter), or even =
writing in Korean once You have the proper font.

    Having mentioned Korean, has anyone heard about Hangul before?  It =
is the Korean alphabet.  Yes, Koreans write with an alphabetic (though =
very Asian style) system--more so than do Americans, arguably!  The =
little "boxes" of characters actually contain two-four letters in a =
prescribed order, thus making up words with one-four (or even more) =
little boxes.  Looks Asian, to the untrained eye it could even be =
mistaken for Chinese or Japanese, but it is (once the letters are =
learned and the order they are put together in) easily decipherable, and =
being quite phonetic, easy pronouncable.  Any thoughts?  Has anyone =
tried to invent a script anything like Hangul?  Coincidentally it =
happens to be an invented script.  Invented by some Korean King who =
wanted people to be able to read and write more easily.

    Having babbled on so long about Hangul, I might as well provide a =
page for it:
http://hyperion.advanced.org/20746/

Sincerely,
                    Roland H=F6nsch
