more than simply present Tolkien's own writings. He thoroughly analyzed a
long text written in Rúmilian, a text that had no notes nor any indication
of the values assigned to letters. It was Arden's analysis that resulted in
the table of values that you re-presented in _Angerthas_, and that Gildor
has now himself re-presented. Arden deserves credit for _his_ analysis, not
for Tolkien's text.

willing to forego any credit or mention from those who would republish your
analyses in no way removes the requirement for authors to properly credit
those whose work they are using.
Well, at least one comment out of four was useful. That may be a record!
