GOOD NEWS about the CARACTORS (NEPHITIC) and KINDERHOOK (very old NEPHITIC, quite like PHOENICIAN in transition to GREEK) being translated to MODERN CHARACTERS.
It was noticed that some CHARACTERS were POINTING toward reading to the LEFT (the usual for SABELLICUS, to differentiate the slave language from Greek's lords language in Greece) or to the RIGHT (the usual pattern for the GREEKS and for the LATIN languages.
We already noticed in the list of Characters named "CARACTORS" that both directions were apointed by the details of the CARACTORS, as the horizontal directions of the "L" (departing from the vertical axis) as if working as "arrows" pointing to the reading direction. Also we have similar "imaginary arrow" provided by the "Ro" character, in conflict with the "L" direction. Also the inclination of the characters, in relation to the standard vertical position, points to the direction of reading...
How could we have a people that could ALTERNATE the way of reading from one line to the next line? One line reading toward the right and the next reading toward the left? That is what the list of characters in CARACTORS is suggesting. It is quite like in now quite uselles typewriters, as I havfe some (not more in use) at the end of typing one line, not returning the printer head some 30 cm and moving to the next line, to start typing the next text. Instead just advance to the next line and start typing in the reversed direction and with reversed type of Characters... As the Nephites were doing: could do.
After making a search in the WEB, I found one solution and much more:http://www.omniglot.com/writing/etruscan.htm
The Etruscan alphabet developed from a Western variety of the Greek alphabet brought to Italy by Euboean Greeks
. The earliest known inscription dates from the middle of the 6th century BC. Most Etruscan inscriptions are written in horizontal lines from rigth to left, but some are boustrophedon (running alternately left to right then right to left).
More than 10,000 Etruscan inscriptions have been found on tombstones, vases, statues, mirrors and jewellery. Fragments of an Etruscan book made of linen have also been found. Etruscan texts can be read: i.e. the pronunciation of the letters is known, though scholars are not sure what all the words mean.

This collection of characters is reading toward the LEFT. Look at the L.

NOTICE that in the document CARACTORS it is missing the use of "DOTs" (points) to separate the WORDS. We can explain that because the document CARACTORS was not to present WORDS "but" CHARACTERS (the document is on "CARACTORS", not on TEXT, on WORDS). And thus instead of using DOTS, they were replaced by SPACES in BLANK.
See the very ancient TOMBS in Italy, of the Sabellicus (Etruscs?), quite like the origin of the INDIAN MOUNDS found in USA for BURIALS.
See one of such TOMBS in ITALY, nearby ROME, of YEAR 500 B.C.

Showing that the SABELLICUS (Etruscans?) CHARACTERS that were engraved at the entrance of so Ancient tomb, on stone head wall, can be read exactly well with Joseph Smith's CARACTORS list, as you see:http://img9.mediafire.com/88dabbca9cf702b886e3bcd95a913ca48b641763dfb3d41236e61269f57c09bb6g.jpg
Notice that there are TWO "L", on the very ANCIENT NAME on the head carved on rock, at the entrance of the TOMB. Notice that one is pointing toward one direction and other is pointing toward the other direction. Thus it was not CRITICAL the direction toward what write...
One general site on the ETRUSCANS: http://www.mysteriousetruscans.com/
And also there is another site about the OLD ITALIC CHARACTERS (quite like in parallel with the Etruscans). In practice all of them mixed as ROMANS.http://pages.uoregon.edu/klio/rr/02-Old%20Italic%20alphabets.htm
Old Italic alphabets
The Old Italic alphabets developed from the west Greek alphabet, which came to Italy via the Greek colonies on Sicily and along the west coast of Italy. The Etruscans adapted the Greek alphabet to write Etruscan sometime during the 6th century BC, or possibly earlier. Most of the other alphabets used in Italy are thought to have derived from the Etruscan alphabet.
The earliest known inscriptions in the Latin alphabet date from the 6th century BC. It was adapted from the Etruscan alphabet during the 7th century BC. The letters Y and Z were taken from the Greek alphabet to write Greek loan words. Other letters were added from time to time as the Latin alphabet was adapted for other languages.http://pages.uoregon.edu/klio/rr/Old%20Italic%20alphabets_files/ancientlatin.gif
Here in the character "A" we can see so strange type of "A" that are so frequently presented in the Kinderhook plates. Some also are shown in CARACTORS document, but are rare cases. They are quite like of very ancient Phoenician origin, never of Greek origin. They are the result of the slavery narrated in Joel 3:6, as the Greek used a well done and well shaped "A" character, not these barbarian and brute "A" from the Phoenicians. Some H I listed as N, but in fact they are H, as it is clear even to "see" them as "H"... nothing justify having selected them as N, except the lack of much better information.
