    Interesting article. I hope its characterization of Nom as a script
    that "was once used by poets and philosophers," and its statement that
    "very few Vietnamese can decipher Nom," will register with people who
    continue to refer to Han as a "CJKV" script. Han is purely historical
    among speakers of Vietnamese, and overwhelmingly historical and/or
    ceremonial among speakers of Korean.
