In this article, I will try to explain what I think ideal encoding of hieroglyphic text should be. I will then proceed to explain what it would mean in practice.
I will probably write multiple versions of this page, after discussion with users.
A number of people have asked me how to install JSesh on Ubuntu. As Linux users are a bit more expert than usual Windows and Mac Users, and as I had to revert to very specific formats for those two systems, the current "generic" distribution (that is, linux distribution) is very raw.
This small text is the first in a list about the problems of hieroglyphic encoding in practice (actually, it could qualify as the second post on the subject, as my previous post about sign D396D396 could qualify too).
I was recently asked a question about the A90 A90 sign in the JSesh library...
I'm currently having discussions about a cleanup of the fonts, and the question of L16 has (re)appeared.
Back in 2008-2009, when M. Thomas developped most of the JSesh fonts, we had a lot of discussions about the Manuel de Codage and the like. Comparing the 1988 MdC with the Winglyph fonts, I wondered a lot about the way L16 looked in both of them.
