Re: Reintroducing myself

Hi Philip,

I have recently created a web page to post my occasional thoughts on the question:


Comments on it are very welcome.

Thanks very much for putting those pages together! :-)

Apart from your observation about alternate lines appearing slightly cramped in the biological section (they certainly do), have you found any other support for the idea that some pages could have been written in two (alternate line) passes?

If the two sets of alternate lines on a page have different statistical profiles, it could well be that each set has its own cipher or codebook... this wouldn't surprise me at all. :-/

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....

PS: with your interest in Medieval German, you may be interested to know that Gerry Kennedy <gerry@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> mentioned to me that a lady from Dublin recently contacted him. IIRC, she has been looking at the VMS for some decades and believes that it's written in a kind of High German mirror writing? Sounds like it could be right up your street. :-)
