I thought this was very useful and easy to use.  Marjorie: thank you very much for your ingenuity and generosity in sharing it with others.

medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture Many thanks for posting the exercises and toolkit.   I did a few lines to test the program and was very pleased with how well it works. I will recommend it to the students in my paleogrpahy course next quarter.

It will have the great advantage that I shall not have to correct all their exercises and they will have the practical experience of transcribing gothic cursive effectively.

I hope others on the list also find the program so useful.

To help students and amateur palaeographers learning how to read the mediaeval handwriting in the Savoyard account rolls, the Castellanie.net project decided to propose some online palaeography interactive exercises. You can access them from the main site, or directly at this URL: http://paleographie.castellanie.net (4 exercises available now, more to come soon)

For the creation of these exercises, I wanted a workflow that would involve as few technical skills as possible (and possibly a total independence from web designers for the palaeographers creating exercises), while conforming to the main technical standards. So, I created a "palaeography exercise" kit (an XSL + CSS + javascript kit) to customize the excellent "Image Markup Tool", a free software.
This kit is now available online (http://tapor.uvic.ca/~mholmes/image_markup/paleography.php), on the Image Markup Tool website, under "Paleography", with some instructions on how to install and use. Like IMT, this kit is free, and you can use it and adapt it to your needs.

Best regards,
