This is a complete online book. I intended on publishing it a long ago in book format. Alas it sat on my hardrive for over 3 years.

Luckily for you I finally decided to place it up here on the net in HTML format.

Itís actually more interactive here on the web. I was able to incorporate many HTML tricks to get the book to really take life. If anyone would be interested in publishing this on a CD or in book format contact me through e-mail.. I have removed the bibliography from this web version so that it would be impossible to publish without my consent.

I am looking for someone to be able to create all of the alphabets I have researched into TTF format so that game masters can have ease in using them in their gaming. If you are a person who works with font editors and would like the job, Let me know through e-mail.

Are you having trouble reading the text above because the color seems to blend with the background too much?.. The reason is because your screen colors are 256 or less.

Change this and you'll have no more trouble reading ANY text on the World Wide Web anymore. This is a MAJOR suggestion if you are one that likes to surf the web.

So, in other words, Get with it! The web has so many more colors to offer you and it will take you a second to do. Windows 95/98 users can *RIGHT* click on their desktop, go to properties, then to settings and finally change the color palette to have OVER 256 colors.. Simple huh?!
