Phillip, Yes, thanks, and sorry to anyone inconvenienced. I was tired & typed it in wrong.

BTW, I also have the rendition of the "African reference alphabet" from the French language report of 1978 Niamey conference on the same page as the previously discussed version from the English report: http://www.bisharat.net/Documents/Niamey78annex.htm (I think I have that right, having copied it over...). One character in the latter is not in the French version - the hooked z. And it shows only lower case letters (I think a matter of convenience, not related to Mann & Dalby's later take on the "Niamey keyboard").

Thanks again & all the best...
