Hi Stefan and list,

I've been working on the SignWriting Image Server.  I updated the display function to output horizontal writing.

I tried out a new style of layout for horizontal writing and I'd like your feedback.  Here's the output for 4 signs and 1 punctuation.


This uses a technique similar to vertical writing because it uses lanes and offsets.  There are 2 lanes: a middle lane and an upper head lane.  Punctuation is always centered in the middle lane.  The second and the fourth signs are centered in the middle lane.  The first and third signs are centered in the head lane.  Any sign that has head symbols is vertically offset upwards into the head lane.

Signs written in the overhead view may cause complications, but otherwise I think the idea is solid.


Thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.

Regards,
-Steve
