For me there is also an invisible "f" in "lieutenant" as the standard British pronunciation is like "leftenant"

    What proper Englishman would want to be promoted to be a "loo tenant"?

    - tye        

      But why choose a replacement pronunciation that sounds very much like being a "lift tenant"? Surely better, but not great.

        I am not sure you can ask "why" when it comes to features of natural languages. Unlike Klingon or Sindarin, they aren't designed; they evolved. The reasons for the path the evolution took (if there were any) are lost in the mists of time.

[Corion]: ... don't support server-side precompilation (which means the client has to compile all templates to Javascript themselves), or are giant frameworks that expect to do everything (which is not what I want)
[Corion]: I feel that there is a talk somewhere in there, either about the structure and parts, or how I used several parts to get a complete whole.
[Corion]: Maybe I can still find something that is compatible with handlebars.js (which has JS precompilation) but allows for two-way data binding (which is great for the UI)
[Corion]: Two-way data binding means that if you change something in a text box, the corresponding variable in your Javascript gets updated immediately as well, and if you then change the variable, the corresponding text box also gets updated
[Corion]: That is a horrible approach that was also taken by Access, but if you have hooks that prevent automatic saving to the database, it is incredibly handy
