Oh.
Well, a couple hours before. I didn't notice on Friday, or whatever time before that one could express their intent. Also, I'm not really that active here; I only check occasionally.

Re: IPA Examples Not Enough Anymore.

Re: The Index Diachronica: v.10.0 is out—IT'S PARTY TIME

Is it better now? Worse? (Some changes I made might require force-refresh.)
For colors, there's a color scheme chooser.

Does anyone have a newer version of the LaTeX file for Index Diachronica?

Therefore, I am asking for help. I think I've figured out how to make a Unicode PDF without having to retyp...
