Cool. Can you give me the bibliographic information? Thanks.

I'm giving up on the Phoenecian / Not Phoenician debate: nothing new is being said now,
and the arguments are getting less persuasive, not more. This is a pity, because I'd hoped
that the debate might produce a really convincing argument to encode or not to encode. I
do agree with John Cowan's late comment that strong justification is desirable when
proposing historic scripts, not least so we can avoid this kind of bandwidth-hogging
debate in future.
