It seemes that Piotr's appeal was to the native speakers of any languages but Russian. Now I will know where to apply if I need to correct my pronunciation. :)

I wasn't attempting to have the last word, only to point out that problems with fine details are inherent in phonetic transcription, whatever language you're transcribing. I was addressing the list members in general, hence the didactic details which are completely superfluous from the point of view of a Russian-speaker.
Always counting on you to correct MY Russian,
