                  onoono mindoni is supposed to be a Quenya name... so
                  you must have the option 'quenya'..

                  the result of the program is generally correct, but
                  it's just don't perfect (it can't know about spelling exceptions)

                      using the tengscribe, you can later change the font in
                      any of the three of them, just arltering their
