Thanks Jim,

I understand. I thought it might give an idea of how much 
simplification might be required. I have made many attempts to 
establish an approximation to the alphabet. All results were wrong. I 
have the idea that what Petr is doing is not much affected by the 
particular transcription or modification as long as it is consistent 
but I do not know.  

Incidentally, the "random" letter frequencies were from the first two 
uses of Dennis' script and were about as would be expected (near 3.8 -
with only 26 variables -- and not 3.5, as I wrongly remembered). 

I know nothing about cryptology. I just applied something that I had 
found some time ago.
