The editor, Per Ahlberg, wrote an article in the first issue entitled "Nus e li altres" (Us and the others). In the same issue Jespersen wrote an article on possible improvements to the language. These ideas included the reintroduction of the letters c and z; consequently, after that time there existed two versions of Novial: Phonetic Novial (FN) and Orthographic Novial (ON). In a later issue Jespersen also wrote about the idea of modified English as a universal language. You can read these three articles and more here:
