Re: Sukhotin's algorithm etc

Hi, Gabriel, thanks for the clarification. I see that the characters in
your meiling were not the Currier's symbols. I looked at your site and
found these six characters.  Now I would like to convert them into
Currier's characters. Is there anywhere a table showing the juxtaposition
of Currier's characters to those in your table?  Mark.
