_____ REPRESENTATION OF CHARACTERS IN HUMAN READABLE MANNER______

(It is continuation of previous messages with the subject Symbolic Name
For Every Character.)

GENERAL
		As  I  have  disclosed  it,  I  am  rather  proposing
	alternative  possibility in HTML to represent any letter in
	human readable manner. That is when you see HTML-source you
	could easily read any content which is written with non-US-
	ASCII  characters.  Presenting characters in human readable
	manner seems me convenient and very reliable.
		(As  I  think  now  when  I  stated  (in  my previous
	messages)  that  HTML  is  US-ASCII-based  I meant that all
	markups (i. e.  tags, attribute names, and other structural
	and presentational  HTML-document  information  which don't
	present  the  document  content)   were  made  of  US-ASCII
	characters. And in my view, it is not bad.)
		At   this   moment,   I  see  several  approaches  to
	representation of characters in human readable manner. They
	are as follows.

SYMBOLIC NAME
		is  such  as  described  in HTML Specification and in
	previous  messages  with  subject  Symbolic  Name For Every
	Character.

TRANSLITERATION
		In  my  view,  for  phonic  languages,  this method is
	better than Symbolic Name method. But for logogram languages
	like Chines, mathematical, chemical,  etc,  I think it isnít
	because the method is based on phonetic sounds.

(P.S. I have just received several e-letters about my previous messages.
Now I am reading them. I need a time for it.)
