Elder Futhark

Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabet, used by Germanic tribes for Proto-Norse and other Migration period Germanic dialects of the 2nd to 8th centuries. It has some 24 runes and these and others are included in the Unicode.

I can easily imagine that people will want to include words in Proto-Norse in OmegaWiki. There is probably not much actual knowledge about this language. There is no ISO-639 code for it.. Well, when we really want to include it, we will. It will look funny on may people's computer; who has the fonts for runes ??
