Let me be the first to say it: this is very impressive and well worth the wait. Benkarnell 14:15, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I actually had this created/adapted from the Mongolian and Manchurian scripts a couple of months back, but that was on paper, and I had to get it into a format that I could upload and get it looking reasonably consistent. The process of doing that took longer than I expected, but I think it was worth it to let the thing sit for a while. Geoff 01:40, 24 December 2008 (UTC)


Yeah this looks fantastic! I wanna try writing with it :) Have you got some different fonts for it yet, or any more samples? Geofturner 13:10 24th December 08 (AEDST)

I'd love to make a font for this. I have a font creator program, but I'm not sure how to work the three forms of the letters and get the computer to automatically pick the right one. I'll have to think about uploading some more samples... Geoff 02:18, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Beautiful script indeed (and even adaptable to other languages). Someone should definitely try to whip up a font (I would myself, had I but the time!). The medial forms could be mapped on the lowercase letters, the initials on the uppercase, and the finals... well, something would have to be worked out, with Alt-codes or similar subterfuges ;-) Kyrmse 12:29, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I can only join the choir: what a lovely script! —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 23:05, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

I insist: someone should construct a font for this, even if you have to use subterfuges like typing final forms in uppercase etc. I may try myself - but won't object if anyone is faster than I am - using FontStruct at http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/. Kyrmse 18:39, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Would you send this script into Omniglot.com?
