VMs: ...And an idea for the labels

Dear all,

One idea for the labels:

In the "Sachsenspiegel", a German high-medieval lawbook, Illustrations accompany the text of the regulations and laws. Pictures and text are separated and linked by highlighted letters which appear in the picture and in the relevant text section.

Ie, if one law started with "If any idiot should call you up after ten during the week...", the capital "I" at the beginning might be highlighted, and a corresponding "I" would be drawn above the image depicting the crime/action/whatever. But the "I" would _not_ be the name of the law, nor would it bear any direct meaning related to the image.

Just a thought. Perhaps the labels are not names, but refer to text passages which describe the images?
