    Michael didn't say that Masonic use of Samaritan should be encoded as a
    cipher of Latin. I suspect he cares as little about how Masons encode their
    texts as I do. They will have the choice, in future, whether to encode
    Samaritan as a cipher of Latin or as actual Samaritan characters. This is
    irrelevant to Unicode.

    and as awesome, as great authors themselves.
