      Thanks Martin. Do you have an URL for a Charter 2007 site?

      A lack of knowledge of the language and grammar is why I hesitate to
      communicate frequently in Rusyn or Slovak with my relatives in
      Slovakia. Once I get beyond my rudimentary knowledge of early 20th
      century Rusyn I most probably would be writing gibberish to them.
