Hey great start! I'm glad to see more of [[Thailand]] appearing. I was wondering if anyone has a good idea how to do the Thai names-- what I'd love is to settle on some sort of authority so we don't end up with Koh Phangan, Ko Pha Ngan and Kohpahngan (Ko(h) Sa(r)n Road is another good example). Any ideas? [[User:Maj|Majnoona]]

:Apparently there's a lot of problems with romanization of the Thai alphabet. According [http://www.thaiwaysmagazine.com/thailand/romanization_thai_language.html this article], "Ko" is the official word, but it's sometimes written as "Koh". I think that with no schematic romanization in popular use, maybe the best idea is to use the most official romanization. -- [[User:Evan|Evan]] 12:48, 5 Nov 2003 (PST)
