That is only what _you_ mean, at my humble opinion CIAO is pronounced
as "Tschau". :-)))

"Tschuess" is pronounced the same way as "Ciao" but it ends with the
german "ue", ASCII 154, HTML "ü". Forse una parola francese
aiuta: il "u" en "Chalon-sur-Sane" pronunciato cos.

"Tschoe" is also pronounced the same way but it ends with the german
"oe", ASCII 148, HTML "ö". Par esempio vedi il "eux" en
"Montreux".

Hope this helps.
