But... you already use "gh" and "ie" digraphs to represent these letters of the alphabet, and if you have any software capable of processing the data, then it must be possible. Changing from the digraphs in current use to some other single character would invalidate all existing data in the Maltese language, cause more problems with interchange of Maltese data between Unicode & ASCII, and confuse everyone who deals with the language.
