Hey all

I am familiar with both the Russian and Ukrainian languages.  The Russian
one looked correct, but when I was learning Ukrainian, I was taught the
order of the last few letters of the alphabet as being:

? -- yoo
? -- ya
? -- (myakiy znak, or soft sign) 

however, you have your list as:

? -- (myakiy znak, or soft sign) 
? -- yoo
? -- ya

(please forgive me in advance if the above glyphs don't show up in a mail
reader correctly .. I don't know enough about how this mail client works to
be sure the glyphs show up, hence the transliterations next to them).

Is this supposed to be in this order?  Granted, I know there have been some
changes to the Ukrainian language during the Soviet Occupation, but I didn't
think the order of the alphabet was different.
