It's been brought to my attention that people are still worried about 
tags for phonetic orthographies. Obviously such transcription is 
useful, and it would be helpful to be able to identify languages when 
written in such orthographies. Here are a few off the top of my head:

fonipa International Phonetic Alphabet
fonupa Uralic Phonetic Alphabet
fonweb Websters phonetic respelling (i-macron = [aj] etc)
fonami Americanist phonetic tradition
fonlep Lepsius' Standard Alphabet
