I have made a number of improvements to the new pages. The most significant is the addition of a glyph search feature. This feature allows users to enter a Barthel code and view all instances of glyphs with that code, in context. The length of the context can be adjusted as well. The default is 300 (pixels) which usually allows for about 5 or 6 glyphs on each side. This search feature is similar to a feature that was implemented before, but in my testing was always excruciatingly slow. The current implementation should hopefully be quicker. Since the number of glyphs returned can be quite large, I have also added a short navigation menu at the top, which allows jumping to the hits for a given tablet.

The way this feature is now implemented, it is possible to bookmark search results. For instance a search for glyph 306 has the link:

The Barthel/Fischer comparison pages have also been improved, so that there is less distortion to the Fischer glyphs. Glyph groups should no longer be pulled apart.
