Care to elaborate a bit on that? Big Grin I'm not quite sure what you're asking.

I think what you're asking is in a word like "toe" for example, do you write the actual characters "t" "o" "e" or do you spell it out phonetically like "t" "o" "w"?

The answer depends on what you're writing the runes for. The historical examples are written out phonetically. For example, in this thread http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=17662 the words "fierce friend" are spelled as the words themselves sound, not character for character. So, "fierce friend" becomes "firs frend". Does this answer your question?

If you see both letters next to each other like that, then both together are probably the sound associated with the rune, it's just that as modern English doesn't have a single letter for that sound, two different letters are needed to spell it out. If you could choose which letter the rune represented, then I'd expect whoever wrote the guide to separate them somehow.

For a modern example, the Swedish letter is sometimes replaced with ae in international settings (say as a pronunciation guide for non-Swedish speakers, if a computer system doesn't support the sign, or for other such reasons), as a "close enough" estimate.
