Ní raigh an "sí buailte" a usaid in mó scoile nuair a raibh mé ann ach chuala me faoi. Cheap me gur stop daoine ag baint usaid as le cuis eigin, .B'feidir go mbeadh tú abalta usaid a baint as an UBB mar in ceanna leis ná smilies. B'feider :sb: don "sí bhuaite".

ok basically, maybe you could use something like a ubb code or smilie for the sí buailte something like :sb:, although i don't even know what one looks like it was mentioned when i was in school but i though it was gotten rid of for some reason.

if u are using the symbol on a webpage it would be a simple case of drawing one that fits in with your default font, then write your page in word, and have it autoformat sb into <img src="sb.gif" border="0" height="12" width="12"> or something like that

Question about Accents in Irish on Computers (in English)

Hi.

Apologies for the use of the "language for selling pigs in", but it's the only one I have.

I do have an interest in representing different languages on computer systems, and am currently experimenting with ways to automatically use English or Irish (or other languages) on websites depending on the settings of the user's computer.

One thing that isn't important for modern Irish but got me thinking is that I know of no way to represent a sí buailte on a computer. It isn't important since it has died out in favour of the typewriter-friendly "h" after the constonant, but since there is a proposed encoding for Ogham it seems weird that there isn't any way to do a sí buailte.

Anyone know of a way to do this?

Isn't it just the 'dot' that goes over the consonant in place of the following 'h'? You'd need one for every consonant that can be followed by a 'h' in Irish, though, wouldn't you? - ...

As you said, it isn't part of modern Irish... unfortunately I don't know of any keymap or font off-hand that supports it.

Téigh anseo:
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acad...1/cloanna2.htm
agus brúigh ar "Gaelchló". Tá na Clóanna go léir saor in aisce. Is é "Bunchló" an Cló a úsáidtear níos minice, ach tá an obair seo go h-an nua fós.
(Go here .........
and click on "Gaelchló". The Fonts are all free. "Bunchló" is the one most frequently used, but this work is very new)


Agus tá sámplaí dena Clóanna Sean-Gheilge, ó 1571 - 1964 le feiceáil anseo (There are samples of the Old-Irish Fonts from the years 1571 - 1964 to be seen here):
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acad...1/cloanna3.htm

...................
Beidh fáilte roimh sibh go léir freisin ar an nuachtghrúpa nua, alt.languages.irish, atá le fáil anseo ag boards.ie faoi "newsgroups".
(You will be all welcome also on the new newsgroup, alt.languages.irish, which is available here at boards.ie under "newsgroups")
