Not quite ready for the E.U.: Molvania

Have you seen this travel guide to Molvania, a little-know East-European country? Their national anthem is one of a kind.

World66, New Travel Resource 'Wiki'


Just came across a new site, World66, which I believe is what the digirati call a "wiki" -- which is basically a kind of group weblog-type thing that anyone can edit. Yes, it sounds crazy, but it just might work.

Anyway, if any of you would like to add your own comments or photos to the Hungary or Czech sections, go for it (click where it says "edit this").

Diacriticals on QWERTY, HTML, ETC.

Ah, Magyar. What a goofy language. I'm sure Czech is no walk in the park, either, but it's Greek to me.

Anyway, typing out a few Hungarian street names in the post below, got me trying to figure out again how to produce those funky diacriticals. Not that we really need to observe them carefully here, hülye külföldi such that we are for the most part anyway, but in case anyone cares, I found this resource with explanations (follow the links) for how to produce them on Macs, PCs and in HTML. For this and the post below, I used the PC Alt codes, which are not proper HTML, so they may or may not show up right on everyone's computers (please advise if not).

Anyway, always trying to be helpful.
