2: Hieroglyphs by Serge J. P. Thomas

Signs by S. Thomas, who has created most of JSesh's glyphs
S.J.P Thomas has sent me quite a few nice hieroglyphs for JSesh. Some of them go into JSesh's standard sign list, but he usually includes many variants for a sign, and also signs which haven't an official encoding yet. Here is a complete collection of those signs. Please note that the signs code are sometimes a bit arbitrary, and should not be considered as final codes (the same goes in fact for all signs in this catalog). M. Thomas id for signing signs is 22. When I choose to use a different code for the signs than the code he gave, I use the code 248.
