Actually I didn't want help correcting my code since I already corrected it
and got it to work at that point - I had the error come up a few times in
totally different snippets of code [and I am sure you all don't want me
running to you with every little error lol]. I just wanted to know, in plain
english, what a transliteration replacement means rather than the specific
coding problem.
