On behalf of Lena, and myself, thank you, Pratik.

I'm curious, though--when I took first and second-year
Latin in high school, the letters, i.e., fonts, were
like English letters, unlike the non-romance languages
I''ve seen. It was as easy to read the Latin (not
translate, of course, until I'd learned) as the
English. Why would Carrie have to change the
recognition language on the scanner? Just curious.
