Re: [KLBC] SISpu' [KLBC]

"Nitro pojwI'" is actually {tlhIngan Hol pojwI'} for Windows 2.1.  A stupid installation program I was using briefly misbehaved in naming the program during installation.  (I've since replaced it.)

In {pojwI'}, {taS} is defined as "liquid solution," whereas in TKD it's "solution (liquid)."

What's nitro pojwi' [sic]?  I don't know how it presents words, but it
should have told you that {taS} means "solution (liquid)" the way the word
is defined the The Klingon Dictionary.  If it just said "solution" by
itself, then I would call it a failing of the tool.  If it did include the
"liquid" part, then I would remind you that you can't just take a single
part of the definition out of context.  The Klingon word typically means
*all* of what is given in the English definition, or at least has the
meaning common to them.

I still don't know what you really wanted to say, since "solution" doesn't
have a lot to do with "explanation" as you used it.
