>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.
