In the situation where SWF/t gets equal play time with SWF/k, where people
can see the essential unity between SWF/t and the house and place names all
around them, and where they are exposed to the excellent publications in
KS. In that situation, some will opt to use diacritics in the interests of
clarity, and the rest will (or should) recognize the variants with
diacritics as superior. I was never taught in schools to write résumé,
façade or belovèd with diacritics, but I do.
