A number of things have been shuffled around since the last entry. After moving the site to kohaumotu.org, I decided to change the old update blog, which had been made using iWeb, a somewhat clumsy arrangement. I briefly tried using phpBB, which is really bulletin board / forum software. I have now settled on a more straightforward approach using a WordPress blog. I am going to redirect traffic from most links to this page as the “front door.” The menu bar here gives reasonably easy access to the main pages of the site, such as the tablets pages. Anyhow the blog approach should allow for a structure that always shows “What’s new.”

Pages for tablet S “Great Washington” have been completely reworked. A photo page—displaying large photos, created by combining the detailed views from the Smithsonian—has been added, as well as an svg page.

The svgs for Fischer’s drawings have been uploaded. A single page version, which is clickable, has been added to the R page.

The glyph library pages have been updated.
The index was updated to include Tablet Y, and now displays the variants grouped.
The glyph variant page now displays images for the variants. The images are taken directly from the tablet pages.
A glyph library page, which display all glyph tables on a single page has been added.

As the glyph variant page makes clear, the numbering of variants is, for the most part, a mess. Variant codes “V”, and “a-e,g” seem to be haphazardly assigned for most glyph numbers, and other codes are not much better. Only “f” is reasonably consistent.

Tablet Y has now finally received Barthel codes. The codes have also been added to the XML corpus, so searches should return hits for tablet Y among its results.
Though there are no genuinely new glyphs, I did in fact use one code that was never used in Barthel’s original corpus. Apparently glyph code 250 had never been used:
glyph 250

Pages for items X and Y have been added. These svgs were created from Fischer’s drawings. Also a page for svg test pages for all of Fischer’s drawings has been added. While all the pages exist, the svgs themselves still need to be added. They will be added from the end. So far Y – T have been added.

Svg pages for tablets H, P, and T completed. With the exception of S, which will require more substantive revision first, all tablets are done.
