Thank you. I did have a look, and, in passing, realized that at least one
Kurdish Web site now uses the latin alphabet.

Later on, I had a look at the source code for the Web page, and did see an
"Italic" tag for some text that was probably what caught my attention.

I ought to declare a long holiday, and study WWS a few hours a day!
