Yes, here's "Mr Sanskrit" asking what is probably a very goofy question 

I have a series of long strings of characters such as:


and I would like a happy little routine that could trot along each 
string and, for each character (and this is ONLY confined
to the Latin alphabet, at the moment) tell me (or, more importantly, 
other scripts) whether it is a VOWEL or a CONSONANT.

Of course, having learnt from Mark Waddingham about the effective nature 
of G & T s, I may end up answering my own e-mail . . .

Thanks Mark, I knew you had more to tell me than "just" computer 
programming :-)
