Post Zeitgeist and IDN usage

Do countries use roman chars or their own?

Iraq: 70% roman
Hong Kong: 80% roman
Greece: 100% roman!!!
China: 5% roman
Korea: 10% roman
Saudi Arabia: 100% roman!!!

Factual or not really?!

Re: Zeitgeist and IDN usage

Just a measure of the inability of outfits like Alexa to accumulate meaningful statistics.

In other words, total bollocks!

Re: Zeitgeist and IDN usage



Boudica (also spelt Boudicca, formerly better known as Boadicea) (d. 60/61AD) was a queen of the Brythonic Celtic Iceni people of Norfolk in Eastern Britain who led a major uprising of the tribes against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.

In 60 or 61AD, while the Roman governor, Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, was leading a campaign on the island of Anglesey in north Wales, Boudica led the Iceni, along with the Trinovantes and others, in revolt. They destroyed Camulodunum (Colchester), formerly the capital of the Trinovantes but now a colonia (a settlement for discharged Roman soldiers) and the site of a temple to the former emperor Claudius, built and maintained at local expense, and routed a Roman legion, the IX Hispana, sent to relieve the settlement.

The fight against the Romans and their writing system continues to this day.

Re: Zeitgeist and IDN usage

Based on Hong Kong: 80% roman and China: 5% roman, i would say the stats are a load of rubbish.. Would imagine real figures to be much much lower.
Where were these stats from?

Zeitgeist (Google) I didn't make the calculus. Eye glance figures, but it's more or less that. Now:

a) Stats are wrong
b) Stats not applicable (for some reason)

http://www.google.com/press/intl-zeitgeist.html At least 4 or 5 members here have this as default browser homepage
