Subject: Transliterations

Calling for assistence in particular from Slavists and theatre theorists:

Specific Case:
Robert Segrest's article "The Perimeter Projects: Notes for Design" mentions
Nikolai Eureinov and the concept of the "theatricalization of everyday
life". I've read this article in the version reproduced in the
collection edited by Michael Hays, _Architecture Theory Since 1968_.

I have been unable to find any material by or on Eureinov through
either a library catalogue search or through a W3 search (two defunct
Web sites did turn up). Could there possibly be another
transliteration of the name? Any bibliographical assistence would be

[Yes I am in the process of following up with the author of the
article and back checking the publication record to locate the
intrusion of any typographical mistake. And I have done searches using
keywords "theater" "theatre" and "everyday life".]

It seems to me that Eureinov's work would help sort out some issues
that crop up in hypertext theory especially as to the imaginative
construction (phenomenology) of the spaces of interaction in
computer-mediated communciation.

General Case:
Transliterations and the sophistication of search engines. Any one
care to venture a statement on the state of the art?

One of our colleagues in the Dept of German here at King's has asked whether there is a Latin spellchecker for Word. If any Humanist subscriber knows of such, I'd be grateful if they would respond either to the list or to me directly, and I'll make sure the information is passed on.

Best wishes
