Demotic and Hieratic

When transcribing hieratic texts, a number of specific signs, which have no hieroglyphic equivalent, might be of interest. Likewise, if one transcribes demotic in hieroglyphs, a number of fac-simile like signs might be interesting. Note: the present signs are displayed in the "left-to-right" orientation. So, in the original text, they would be reversed. For demotic, hieroglyphic transcription is not currently the standard practice (it used to be). But it's really useful to transcribe when learning demotic.
