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.
