Re: VMs: Image Source, Accuracy of Transcriptions

Sorry, While I believe that the inital "f" and "k" for paragraphs/sentences should not be included as parts of words - your statement "the character 'f' in fachys is a character that only appears in the MS on the top lines of paragraphs" is not entirely true.  'f' appears as a character (or set of characters) many times.

Pardon my being very frank, Jeff, but I think
you're walking up a dead alley. That's my opinion
and I may be wrong, but let me explain why I think
The main reason is that you're working from
a transcription file in Eva, and you need to
keep a close eye on what it looks like in the
VMs. Thus, a word like 'fachys', which you're
interpreting as a 6-character word does not
look like a 6-character word. Same with 'ataiin'
which is on the same line.
As long as you don't deviate from this path,
there will be a dead end.
Furthermore, the character 'f' in fachys is a
character that only appears in the MS on the
top lines of paragraphs. Whatever the reason
for this, it has to be treated in a different
way from the other characters.

Anyway, this is like a maze, there are nothing
but dead ends and there are still plenty of
opportunities to turn in a new direction.
Also, of course, there are plenty of opportunities
to keep running around in circles, which is
pretty close to what I think I've been doing :-)

All the best, Rene
