Concensus transcription?


I recall seeing someone refer to a transcription based on majority vote 
of the collated existing transcriptions, but can't seem to find it. I'm 
revisiting finite state automaton induction on the "words" in the Biological
B folios, and want to have the best transcript possible.

BTW, the initial results are interesting...in particular, I don't think
it can be what we've been calling a "verbose cipher" (single plaintext
letter maps to Voynich letter combinations of different lengths) unless
Currier C, S, and Z are nulls (at least in some/many cases). When I hit
a sufficiently frustrating wall, I'll write up what I've been doing and
post it so folks can see what the evidence and reasoning is.
