prepotent bureaucracy. On the other hand people now finally
learn that orthography is arbitrary and not a gift of the
gods (or devils ;-) And that's a progress in any case.
> Are you willing to implement the "new rules"In no case. For our journal we receive articles in different
spellings, so we have to 'reset' orthography from time to
time. I have to admit that it's not such a big job, mainly
the rules for sharp s and the spelling of composita
(together or disjunct) are really different. This last
issue will be drawn back soon by the responsible comittee.
To put it optimistically: I expect a liberalisation.
