Courtesy of Google Translate. Cut & pasted as I have difficulty enough drawing the Latin alphabet. Either GT &/or my system rendered Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc. as little character-filled boxes.
While not technically alphabets, Asian translations/transliterations would have been cool to see.
Elsewhere on the Web
An animated graphic on the evolution of the Latin alphabet, showing the migration of letters.
