lu + sunu = kxeyey. ;) and I don't quite get that second part :S

That's interesting. I didn't think about amateur radio.

I wonder what year UTF-8 will be total world standard...

I think we may have an established convention here. I wonder what Pawl would think about this.

I forgot that sunu is one of the few infinitive verbs we have. Not the first time, either :(
The second part is fixed. The meaning is 'Lets make it so'.

`i, :a
`i could be treated as 'i, so I personally would avoid such combination...

I agree, like I said earlier:

Ohh, yours are much better, Tirea. I think these are a lot less ambiguous, and the last one could be used for [a-zA-Z0-9]:

:D Tstunwi!

six as sì for me would take a little getting used to. :P ;D I like this, I guess: Omit where obvious, use best version (least ambiguous) otherwise. I'd say six as sì would have to be reserved for dire situations such as [a-zA-Z0-9]. I think I much prefer `i, :a and i*, a* if possible. EDIT: although `i might have some confusion in some fonts. ` and ' are similar..

DOUBLE EDIT: So therefore I propose this system:

UTF-8 possible: ì = ì, ä = ä (goes without saying.)
ALL of ASCII: ì = i*, ä = a*, omit * when redundant because of obviousness
[a-zA-Z0-9]: ì = ix, ä = ax, omit x when redundant because of obviousness

First off, I have merged two topics with the same problem: writing ä and ì on devices that do not support UTF-8 or it uses very basic character sets.

Suggested alternative writing if ä and ì is not working due to lack of UTF-8 or limited character code support:

ä -> a* - a: - ax - aq - a" - "a - :a - 4
ì -> i* - i: - ix - iq - i^ - \i - `i - 1

By far the easiest options of all those are 1 and 4.  There's also aa and ii, which could otherwise never occur except to possibly represent ä and ì.  ax and ix are nice too.   Just my preferences / opinions.
