|    For really hard to pronounce phrases, perhaps its worth considering
|    an attribute for specifying the pronunciation using the International
|    Phonetic Alphabet. Can anyone give me a lead on how to represent
|    IPC characters conveniently using ASCII?  Is there an agreed set
|    of SGML entities?  
| 
| Yes I think there is, but I don't think it is possible to represent
| the chars using ASCII very easily (although maybe the IPC people do
| this in email somehow). There is certainly a recognised name for each
| character (I think the ipamacs.sty file in the wsuipa font collection
| for TeX implements the glyphs by name).
