Note to Jon from George: Every time I make a change to this page, it turns all the non-Roman letters into question marks, and it looks like it moves all the macrons. How does one prevent that from happening. Also, on the Estonian word "korvits" that I added, there's supposed to be an accent on the 'o' that I'm not familiar with. It's shaped like a very squished seven, or like a cedilla, but on the wrong side. If you can figure out what it is and how to get it to show up, that would be nice.
