      The French tehta mode that I am most familiar with definitely does not
      follow traditional spelling; it is completely phonemic. In that mode,
      nasal vowels are represent by placing the appropriate ómatehta over
      the tengwa 'nwalme'. ('noldo' wold also be a logical choice, but in this
      mode it is used for '-gn-' = [nj].) Ryszard Derdzinski's Polish mode
      uses the 'a' and 'e' tehtar over the long carrier to represented the
      nasalised versions of these vowels. I have seen about six different
      Portuguese modes, but only two of them are tehta modes; those two handle
      the nasal vowels the same as the French mode I spoke of before, i.e. the
      appropriate tehtar over 'nwalme'.

      Cuio mae, Danny.
