== Regarding yogh and wen ==
I personally don't favour the use of yogh and wen, and think we should follow the conventions of modern Anglo-Saxon scholarship in using g and w.
 
Personally, I'm not terribly motivated by the question of whether this is historically accurate or not; I feel that the dominant conventions of ''modern'' Anglo-Saxon orthography (by Anglo-Saxon scholars, etc.) should serve as more of a guide than scribal conventions of the Anglo-Saxon era.
 
In any case, the prevailing convention before making your change (e.g. to [[Ȝeānlǣht Cynerīce]]) was not to use yogh and wen (I think this may have actually been codified somewhere by James) and I do think this is something that ought to be standardized and that we should engage in some sort of process before changing orthographic standards. --[[User:Saforrest|Saforrest]] 04:03, 18 Gēolmōnaþ 2008 (UTC)
