    The native direction of Ogham is bottom-to-top, although it is rotated
    to left-to-right when it has to coexist with Latin.

    There presumably is no traditional method of setting Ogham with
    Han-influenced scripts, although doubtless Michael will be able to design
    something suitable for a nominal fee. ;-)

    I must confess that I have very little notion of what [s. 4 of the British
    Trade Marks Act, 1938] is intended to convey, and particularly the sentence
    of 253 words, as I make them, which constitutes sub-section 1.  I doubt if
    the entire statute book could be successfully searched for a sentence of
    equal length which is of more fuliginous obscurity. --MacKinnon LJ, 1940
