There's a new system of writing being introduced that involves using all versions of the same character to write a word. Not sure if that means using all available fonts or what, exactly, but it makes the words very very long and hard to read. (Like: wWO0orRDdS$s) But it's going to be mandatory so we all have to learn it. They -- whoever they are -- have hired Tom Hanks to be the spokesperson for this, and he's come to our neighborhood to pitch for it. My main question was how are they going to handle languages with non-Roman characters? Or are we going to have to include these characters in our spelling? I awoke before Hanx responded to my concerns.
