Since much of text speak is phonetically based – substituting phonetic equivalent letters, numbers and glyphs in the place of longer equivalents – is anyone aware of regional differences in text speak conventions, anywhere in the world, based on variations in regional pronunciation?

Greetings from Argentina.
Good point. I guess a standard or general convention is in order.
Great web. Got here looking for information about 2D barcodes and camera phones. By the way, if you could contact me via e-mail that would be great, since I have some questions. Hope you don’t mind.
Bye.
