Thank you for replying Steve, these links helped a lot to figure out
how all the pieces of this infrastructure fit together.
I've uploaded the swis software to my website, and I can render
SignWriting using bsw codes. One example where I'm doing this is
I have rendered two separate images, use the bsw= param to
glyphogram.php. I notice on Adam Frost's website, he uses the
build= param. I haven't quite figured out how to call build=,
and I wonder if you can help me discovered how to use build=?
I still would not consider myself fluent at reading bsw encoding,
and it could be my trouble understanding how to use build= is
aggravated by this ignorance.
It seems that build= gives greater control over render order of
symbols? Some specific pointers about the difference between bsw=
and build= would be really fantastic.
Thank you again, this software is an absolute pleasure to work with.
I accomplished my goal of installing and using it within a day, and
am happy enough with the results to show them off here. :-)
