(BTW, sorry about jumping in on Ladislav's challenge to you the other day...)
I am feeling like an idiot today (which is not necessarily *that* unusual), but
I am not sure that I understand what you are suggesting. It appears as though
you are setting up a kind of map, where Czech special character S< 0160 LATIN
CAPITAL LETTER S WITH CARON maps to the spot following the "less special"
character S 0053 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER S. If that is a correct characterization,
then I believe I understand that part (and was already working on a type of
mapping). But I don't understand how the sort-form is sorted. I feel as though
I am missing the point (I am looking at the sheet of music and not hearing the
song again). Do not feel as though you have to spend in a lot of time trying to
give "clue" to the "clueless", but if you have a very brief way to explain
further, or a brief partial example, I would appreciate it. I believe that I
already have a solution worked out, but I'm still collecting a mapping with any
free moments that I have.
Thanks for your input. You frequently have great ideas, so I wouldn't want to
overlook a better method!!!
