Was thinking of doing that :P

Figured though that not all beginners would know that what they heard in the movie is written that way

Probably what Frommer said, considereing its his invention :P

And thanks!  It looks kind of crappy though, I really need to learn to do frames or whatever

Well, once we get the wiki up and running we could always link words to their definitions on the wiki.  It would be an easy way to interconnect to the wiki.

I was also just going to copy-paste the raw text where all the stuff would be in pretty columns into a word document, then take a screenshot and upload an image.

I just wanted to make sure that this was the same mechanic like he described for the X and not a different throat thing.

The BB codes here have table goodies for you to play with, but I'm certainly not brave enough to attempt it yet. ;)

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.
