as far as tables go, the SMF help site says the tables work exactly the same as html counterparts, so theoretically I could make the tables in like Dreamweaver, and just import the HTML and it'll work.

Until then there's this:

Both of those examples are the approximant /ɹ/, not the flap /ɾ/.  It's hard to give English examples because we don't have /ɾ/ as a distinct phoneme in most dialects, but perhaps the "tt" in better, which is /ˈbɛɾɚ/ in general American.

Ooh good fix, Irayo!

Karyu Amawey:
Wow...that looks perfect, except I have to agree that the [r] is actually a alveolar flap [ɾ] like the tt in butter as well!

fixed, and irayo!

Karyu Amawey:
Also, be careful with the IPA for the ejectives, as [!] is actually a click sound.  use the apostrophe instead, such as tx = [t']

the r flap always reminds me of the English d sound, don't know if that would be better for the Idiots version or not...
