Is there any list of this kind? the web is an ocean in perpetual change. I come across the sites, maybe we could find more. How many is the rule?

I know personnaly Louis Rougnon-Glasson and we are in contact regularly. Our project and his project are not rival but complementary.Don't be shy to ask him. He is very kind. We agree about the phonetic part of the standard. suggest to write phoneticallywith the current and actual keyboard. Louis Rougnon-Glasson suggest a new characters to note sounds witch are currently represented by 2 or 3 letters. I agree on this point of view for the future.To keep things simple, our project can be seen as ortograf 1.0 and the Louis' project could be ortograf 2.0.

You are right.

I would have been so vain to suggest a subtag with my name  ;-)ortograf or montreal2004 is enough for me.
