The concept of an English *script* as opposed to a French *script* is a
bad idea.  I have recently had occasion to contrast writing systems in
the Thai script (for Thai and for Pali respectively), and also to
contrast writing systems in the Hebrew script (for Yiddish, and for two
systems for Hebrew).

TUS 8.0 Section 6.1 Paragraph 2 makes it clear that the concepts are
quite distinct.
