"Sumerian Proverb of the Day"

Based on the ETCSL collection: Black, J.A., Cunningham, G., Ebeling, J., Flückiger-Hawker, E., Robson, E., Taylor, J., and Zólyomi, G., The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature ( http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/ ), Oxford 1998-2006.

"Sumerian Cuneiform writing"

Based on unicode "UR-III" fonts -- with direct link to ePSD.

For a "transliteration" line it produces the (UR-III) cuneiform version with links to ePSD

For transliteration you can use
- 'j' for 'ĝ' and 'c' for 'š',
- '/' or '?' before and after determinatives (e.g., /d/en-lil2 or unug/ki/),
- '-' or ',' for word parts,
- '.' for compound cuneiform,
- '(' and ')' to specify used cuneiform,

e.g., /d/ba-u2 nin(SAL.KUG) iri-kug-ga
or ?d?ba,u2 nin(SAL.KUG) iri,kug,ga

IT WORKS ONLY ON STRONG DEVICES (large memory and fast cpu), BECAUSE CUNEIFORM FONTS ARE EXTREMELY HUGE.
