      I use that scheme in my suggestion for a swedish mode on
      http://www.forodrim.org/daeron/md_teng_primers.html .

      A doubled (five-dot) A-tehta for Å is perhaps not so pretty,
      and so the 'backwards twist'-tehta has been suggested as a
      replacement. It's not too weird, since it is used for
      'following w' in sindarin modes, and has a similar use in
      english modes (e.g. DTS 16-18). But I'm still not convinced...
