Ulrike, Ulrike, you are normally so clear thinking :
how can you reasonably advocate that a nation (worse,
a group of nations) should re-think their orthography
in order to pander to the needs of a minority-interest
typesetting system.  Would you also suggest that the Chinese
whittle down the number of hanzi from 50 000 to 256, so
that they can all be handled in a single 8-bit font ?
