Initial introduction to 9 said there was an accented space -- náhást'éí. Here it is not included. Will be interesting to see which spelling persists.

DL still treats Náhást'éí as if it contains a typo. Is it really wrong to include the glottal stop here?

I noticed 3 months later that DL also says "Pay attention to the accents" on "Náhástéí," apparently for the last letter, even though elsewhere DL explicitly includes this as an alternative, with the high tone í instead of the low tone i.
