In order to display this page correctly, you will need the Egyptian transliteration font made available by the Centre for Computer-aided Egyptological Research, Faculty of Theology, Utrecht University, Holland, http://www.ccer.nl/. Once you have entered that site, choose the top-level heading “egyptological resources” and scroll down the page to get to the link for the font. You will need the font if the letters after the word “Sample” below show in ordinary typeface - if the font has been correctly installed then when the page is refreshed you will see various additional marks above or below the letters.
