The WikiHiero extension allows the addition of Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs from text written in accordance with the Hieroglyph coding manual syntax.

See the Hieroglyph coding manual for details. [need link]

In brief:

- - separator
: - subdivision
* - juxtaposition
! - end of line
\ - reverse an asymmetric character
V - rotate character [only a few are supported, e.g. Y1, Y1V]

Each hieroglyph is given a unique code:

  • A letter [A-Z + Aa] that represents the hieroglyph category (human, god, bird, etc.)
  • A number that represents the rank in this category [1-...]

This unique code is an extension of Gardiner's list of hieroglyphs.

The Hieroglyph coding manual allows the use of the more common phonemes as well as unique code.

For details, see WikiHiero's syntax .
