>I agree that this system results in the people who actually do
the work getting computer support before others (heavens!), but
twenty (ten?) years from now it's hard to imagine that there
will be any ethnic group with a written language whose language
isn't solidly supported by all popular computer systems, thanks
to those scoundrels in the computer industry.
I have no argument with the bulk of your message. I'm not as
confident, though, that on the pace we're on now every ethnic
group with a written language will be solidly supported by any,
let alone all, popular computer systems 10 or even 20 years
from now. I certainly want to do what I can to contribute to
that end, though, and will certainly be glad if your prediction
turns out to be true.
