Generally no, with two exceptions. I would be very desirable to
retain S with ' above (Š will work satisfactory instead of it) and
also A with _ above (often changed by Â, A with ^ in the old
books). Both these characters are available in standard western
character set, I hope that you could see them in my message well.
Š gives quite different sound, while Â sometimes changes
meaning (more often a form) of the word.
By the way, I have prepared 7th vol with satisfactory formatting
and half of 6th, though I have no possibility ti send it earlier that
after several days. I very glad that our efforts to persuade TPH
finally ended with success.
