Standard Reform Alphabet

The Standard Reform Alphabet is an effort to bring the language into closer compliance with more common Unicode characters without losing some of the richness of the orthographic structure of the language. The Reform Alphabet was created as a compromise between the Standard Literary Alphabet and the various ascii variations.
