Sorry, please forward this to the Heralds list. Hotmail is coughing up
hairballs on me today for some reason.

If I thought he cared one way or another, I would have been more
definitive here. As such, he has been 'using' the assumed name for
years and his Knight wants it and a device registered. I would say
sound is most important and it sounds just like it is spelled if
pronounced by someone speaking English

All I can say here is Hotmail has it's limitations and I type in Plain
text to avoid a variety of issues. I could have used OCM if I had
thought of it, but instead chose to come as close as I could to what
was on the forms that I have for the submission. The final forms will
have the appropriate accent marks as it is done in MS Word

Same here, I don;t have a copy of a lot of these books that would make
such things easier. This is why I ask out here for those who do have a
copy to look it up and give me, and therefor the submitter, the proper
documentation and conflict checks.
