The issue? Peter, please be clear when you write. Which issue? "The  
issue" I raised is that "pinyin" and "wadegile" are by default Latin  
because there are no other possiblities of interpretation. Is that  
"the issue" to which you refer? Because I don't believe you have  
demonstrated that what I have said is incorrect. Nor have you  
demonstrated how your position (that "Latn" must be included) is
