I just noticed on the UK News tab of the BBC new site, there are entries for England, Wales, Scotland and Nor'n Ireland.

Well, OK, that's been there for ages.

But they're also showing both Cymru and Alba, being the Welsh and Scottish Gaelic versions.

Have I just never noticed the latter two, or have they done a subtle redesign to bring those from the left sidebar into the main area there?

I have no idea, but trying to read Gaelic makes me feel slightly dizzy, since their accent goes the opposite way to the fadha and it's like someone's been writing Irish when drunk!

On the plus side, you have to look at their lexicon. Just the "a"s are rather enlightening on the words used.

Cymru's been there for a long time, at least a couple years. Never noticed the Alba page though.
