Nushu raises its head now and again, usually in the popular press without
any illustrations. Actually I read a Swedish article some years ago which
had some pictures.

I am sure that the Chinese National Body will turn to Nushu after work on
the Tai/Dai scripts is completed, if there is a need to encode texts
written in this language.
