VMs: Re: Numbered transcription
I'd have to agree that the 'word' is not the easiest thing to sort
out sometimes, so numbering the 'word' may have very little use.
Not true - if you'd like a second (or 3rd, or... nth) pair of eyes to check
over your (or anyone else's) transcription, having a word index (as well as
a line index) could be a very big help to tracking down inconsistencies.
I've done some reading on the PHP idea, but I wonder about display
capabilities. The font is in development stages, and won't be
releasable until the whole of the VMS is transcribed and discussed
in this setting.
Releasing a beta version of the font onto your own site should be fine - as
long as you're careful to label it as a beta, I don't think anyone should
have a problem with it.
As we've already tested, web-based fonts do not
work on all browsers, so that's pretty much out as well. Simple
but effective is the goal here.
BTW: via the magic of CSS, here's the kind of thing I originally had in
mind (note that requires EVA font to have been installed, don't come crying
to me if you see "qoteedy" etc):-
This seems to work fine on IE6 (and I'm pretty sure on IE5): it also works
on Netscape 4.08 and 4.76 (though the numbers don't come out subscripted -
that's probably a CSS2 feature). Any other browser-users out there care to
BTW: CSS and XML are an extremely nice fit. :-)
