orion Orion: Answering Limit Question


Bilinear scripts are also called majuscule, all caps: ABCDE.
Quatrolinear scripts, aka, minuscule, are what's on this
screen. Trilinear is a bit more complicated to explain. They
hang from the top line... sort of. Simply calling them bi- or tri-
or quattrolinear scripts is rather deceptive and does not explain
how limits work or what they mean. To to get to the purpose and
meaning of these limits will take some illustrations. While ASCII
is not the world's best medium for "drawing," it is still possible
to give an approximation. I'll have to prepare some, though,
and today being what it is, it will have to wait until Sunday.

Shana tovah to all,
