Or this? If we're going to do this, may as well add a fourth column comparing the NATO alphabet.

Choices, choices. I like to see boxes, perhaps if the whole table was wider, more space for each column then you could get away with repeating each word.GraemeLeggett 18:52, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
But when the word is not repeated, it's most easy to see where there's been a change at a glance. Michael Z. 2005-04-11 19:18 Z
Now I look at it, why is Johnny spelt different was when its pronounced the same GraemeLeggett 20:58, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Nab/Negat[edit]

Should that be Nab/Negate? Michael Z. 2005-04-11 18:11 Z

I've usually seen that written as Nan - i.e., N-Nan. Ian Dunster 08:40, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Deleting / changing[edit]

Since the table is not ref'd, I'm redoing it. One of the sources confirms the first column, w a few changes, including the dates; there seems to be no room for the second, as the first went directly to the third, so I'm commenting it out; and I've changed some of the third though I don't have a good ref yet. Please restore if I've screwed up, just include your refs so we can confirm. — kwami (talk) 22:34, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
