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
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.
