- Can anyone supply me with a photocopy or PDF of the Quettar publication(s)
which described the digits? Måns says there was a special publication, but
I heard somewhere that there were two other articles. Maybe the special
publication combined the two?

This ZIP file contains TIF images (easily inserted into most
word processing programs) showing:
1) Quettar Special publication No. 1 (Sept. 1987), pages 1 and 4.
2) Beyond Bree, (Dec. 1984), page 1, containing a reprint from
Quettar, No. 13 (Feb 1982), containing a note from CJRT dated
16 May 1981.
I hope that this helps. If desired, I can convert the TIFs to PDFs
early next week.
My questions are (may have already been asked):
a) Will Tengwar from passages edited and published by CJRT be
included in Mr Everson proposal? Such as title page
b) Will the Tengwar proposal include the additional characters
used in Tolkien's Old-English mode? (I didn't see them in
the character chart.)
I will continue to examine the proposal and hope to supply this
group with additional comments next week.
A warm thank you to everyone contributing to this endeavor.
(Especially to Michael and Måns!)
