Hi, I gather everyone has agreed to accept [nn] without [no] as the prefix for 'hognorsk'--sorry it took so long for me to get

my comments on this back to you; hope it is not too late!


I just wanted to say that . . .

I personally would be fine with a comment that 'hognorsk' is closer to [nn] than to bokmal. and with info. about what dialects are most prevalent in 'hognorsk', in [nn], versus in 'bokmal'--in the comments on the 'hognorsk' variant--if that does not violate any tradition (obviously hognorsk is closer to [nn] since we chose the [nn] prefix).  


I don't see how such a comment solves the problem of interoperability in different systems however.

(Sorry again that it took so long for me to get this response back!)
