That I did not know. I have seen Zeon some where but can't think
where. I'm sureit was in a book.

No it's not, I usually romanise according to kana and not sound, however
for names written in katakana, it takes some imagination. Another
interesting note, I have seen Char romanised as Shar in the same letter
October wrote to Chein. I guess <ShiftJIS encoding>$B%8%*%s(B and $B%7%c%"(B
</ShiftJIS encoding> are going to be more accurate than any
romanisations which not follow standard kana sounds.
