Sweet Jesus, TT. I hope you're wearing a cup or something - it's dangerous over there.

I have friends in Dubai. I may have to have one of those Olivettis shipped over. An Arabic-language typewriter has been on my must-have list for quite a while.

So that's how they fit initial and final forms of the letters on a typewriter - the shift key? Why didn't I realize that?

Another debt of gratitude to Mr. Tytell.
