Why on earth would they use Ch and Sh when 1) C isn’t used by itself and 2) if you’re using Ǵǵ you may as well use Çç Şş.

The change completely dumps the previous approach of digraphs with an apostrophe in second position in favor of an acute diacritic mark above the base letters for vowels Á/á, Í/í, Ó/ó, Ú/ú, Ý/ý and two consonants Ǵ/ǵ and Ń/ń, while the other two become commonly encountered H digraphs, Ch/ch and Sh/sh.
