Thank you for the updated URL for CRI's Hausa webpage. In looking again at that site and thinking about the Hausa boko orthography online issue, I was reflecting again on the apparent challenges faced by content creators with the hooked letters. One solution is keyboard layouts and all, but another is a kind of software utility to place the hooked letters in the appropriate places in a Hausa ASCII text. This is a topic I mentioned previously on H-Hausa (in the "New Hausa blogs" thread in April 2007) So I posted a message about this on a technical forum to see if some people with technical skill or who've already developed similar utilities could do this for Hausa. See http://www.quicktopic.com/8/H/JxKHyg9ccPUVB (message 108).
