    I've not heard from Elaine recently, so I don't know if any further work has been done on
    these proposals or, indeed, what remains to be done. As I understand from the proposals
    themselves, there are further manuscripts that should be reviewed in order to confirm the
    character set, and the proposed names and character properties need to be reviewed, and
    the complex Babylonian marks need to be identified in some systematic way that will enable
    them to be given names.

    I did provide Alaine with a font with which to illustrate the proposals.
