Hello Brian,

I've been thinking that I need to get to grips with Latin-based language
pickers and keyboard layouts for a while, so this morning before starting
work I wrote one.  It was done quickly, so I may need to improve a few
things later, but it may be of some use to you for inputting Tli?cho?.

You can find it at

Hope that helps,
RI


PS: There seems to be a bug when you use in IE.  I'll have to sort that out
later. Seems to work fine in Firefox, Chrome and Opera.
