But yours looks very good too, thanks for creating it!
- Thanks for your kind words, Evert!
I have added some more features to my Tengwar web app:
- Fixed a few transcription bugs
- Sindarin Tehtar mode
- Sindarin Beleriand mode
- Black Speech mode
- Support for the Tengwar Parmaite font
- A better user interface
- More predefined quotes
