I would like to draw your attention to Martin Hellmann's outstanding web-based resource for the verification and deciphering of Early Medieval Shorthand, a.k.a. Tironian Notes. His "supertextus notarum tironianarum" is a magnificent achievement, and one constantly being enriched to our enormous benefit. Please find it, as below, via http://www.martinellus.de Martin Hellmann's deep understanding and years' of thoughtful and creative toil on this wonderful instrument have made an enormous difference to my own meager but needful progress with Notae. A favorite turn of Lupus of Ferrières, which Heiric of Auxerre constantly rewrites in the margins of Lupus's letters in Notae, is "gratias habeo et ago." My sentiment exactly, and I expect that Heiric would approvingly rewrite and endorse that sentiment in this case, too, as specifically and very sincerely directed to Martin Hellmann.
