Most Georgians can't read the so-called "uppercase" letters, which are
really monumental-style and very obsolete.  The mkhedruli letters
(the ones named simply GEORGIAN LETTER in Unicode letter names)
are the only ones people know who aren't specialists in old manuscripts
and inscriptions.

Only do what only you can do.               John Cowan <jcowan@reutershealth.com>
