I'm not an expert [ :-) ] but it would be worth 
looking at "real" MS herbals, so see how much
was coloured.

Yes, that is a very interesting 'new feature' of 
the MS that was previously not known, as far
as I can tell. I am intrigued by the lettering that is
clear at Gabriel's image processing page. This looks
almost like some intermediate form between
normal script and VMs script. What could that 
tell us???
