This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 00:45, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

    • An en:extinct language, but a lively literary and en:liturgical language on Java, Bali, and Lombok.
    • Script issues, Balinese vs Latin, but preferably Latin.
      • Why an issues, the two script would be allowed in kaw. (4 May 2005)
      • If you want an Latin-only-Kawi-wikipedia, propose "kaw-latn" instead. (4 May 2005)
        • You're right, there is no script issue. Both scripts should be allowed. Meursault2004 13:14, 7 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
          • Are there even fonts in the old Javanese language script? If there are, that should be included. Gothic wikipedia uses the old Gothic script. I was surprised Gothic could still be written on computers. If old Javanese fonts do exist, it should be in that script. If not, use Latin.--Fox Mccloud 21:00, 27 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
