OT: Aisle, Bdellium, Ctenoid, and tooltips?

Years ago I saw a list modeled after the Abel, Baker, Charlie...
alphabet, but where the pronunciation of each word sounds as if it
does not contain the letter in question. I search recently on the web,
but didn't find anything really complete, so fashioned my own, on

However, there are no good words for the letters F, N, R. If anyone
with an interest in odd words has any suggestions, I'd be interested.

As a second item, in Internet Explorer I can't figure out how to reset
the font used for the tool-tips. None of the options seems to change
it from the default (which doesn't render IPA characters). Any advice?
