Incidentally, I notice that the Hawai'ian Wikipedia is using ? for the glottal stop. Is this a widespread usage in Hawai'i currently, and/or is it a mere ASCII stopgap? In IPA it is usual to use a symbol that looks like a question mark without the dot at the bottom, and at least in NW US Indian languages both ? and 7 are frequently pressed into service in ASCII media.

who apologizes for the digression from matters musical,
but would like Hawai'ian texts posted here to be as "correctly"
spelt as possible
