    Can anyone point me in the right direction for the codes for characters
    commonly employed in ancient Egyptian transliteration (NB: not the
    hieroglyphs themselves!) and based on Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar?

    I'm thinking especially of the following:

    the sign used for aleph (looks like a 3, but isn't, obviously)

    the sign used for yod (looks like a i with a right ring tick above it)

    the sign used interchangeably for q (looks like a k with a dot beneath

    Any help most gratefully received,
