      Danger: Notetab forums can be time killers!

      Not having been exposed to the word "trema" before I had to look it up.
      That only took three or four hours. As with all things internet, one link leads to another so into the fascinating world of
      linguistics I plunged.

      One can (and many do), spend a lifetime studying the history, evolution and usage of just the various glyphs used in languages
      around the world so spending only a few hours isn't bad. For anyone interested, Wikipedia is a good place to start.

      Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
