Here are the corrections:
The 'o' in _Lindórie_ should be long. This can be represented either
as an 'o'-curl over a long carrier or as a double 'o'-curl. I used a
double 'o'-curl following the example of the calligraphy on the One
The 'r' in _Lindórie_ should be written with rómen, not óre. The óre
is used before consonants and at the end of words only. Use rómen
The 'n' in _ortane_ and _vanesse_ should be written with númen, not
noldo. Noldo is used for 'n'<'ñ', which, I think, occurs only
initially in Quenya.
Cuio mae, Danny.
