	Thanks, Jan!  For the record.  The "dark" copy of f1r
was scanned by Rene Zandbergen from a second-generation
Xerox of Friedman's photocopies of the VMs which are
now in the possession of the Marshall Library,
Arlington VA USA.  The "light" copy was scanned by
Takeshi Takahashi from the Yale copyflow.

	A brief comment here about transposition ciphers. 
Transposition ciphers seem very unlikely to me due to
the low second-order character entropy of VMs text and
the highly structured nature of Voynichese words.
