Yes! Exactly! :-) (I would not know exactly the position of the palatalisation dot, but is reads perfectly.) Well, almost exactly, but I did not give you enough information: there are additional helping dots that fill the space to give the eye the possibility to identify the exact position of the strokes even when there's only one glyph on a large piece of paper. The helping dots in Tyl Sjok are inserted in the middle of one of the eight sub-squares: .. *. .. .. *. .. .. .. And the palatalisation dot is exactly *on* line 18. But that may change, I'm not sure whether I like it. Another thing: The characters are written in square boxes with space in between, so they are too close. The left half of the box is reserved for the radicals, which is a semantic part. I did not finish all ~200 radicals needed for writing, though. **Henrik PS: Graphics soon.
