Test of the transcription functions for handling more complex pages of manuscripts in the enhanced version of FromThePage using to encode a wide range of formulae, figures and diagrams--including Peirce's Existential Graphs.

Note that the each encoding of a formula starts with a start and stop command so that FromThePage knows to interpret what is found between those commands as a encoding.

The start command is two braces ({{), followed by tex: The stop command is :tex, followed by two braces (}}). Click on the transcribe command above to see how they are embedded in this text for each formula and diagram.

(1) Mathematical formula

(2) Logical diagrams (Existential Graphs of C.S. Peirce)

(3) Chemical diagram and formula

Use [ligolone?] in place of [peinchi...?] [norrowplume?] 2

Ladies and Gentlemen

At the end of the last lecture I gave a rule for positively ascertaining whether a graph is alpha possible or not. It also determinesfurnishes a description of the state of things in which it is possible. I said suppose it was not the best possible rule; but it is reasonably speedy. Considering that the system of existential graphs is not intended to be used as a calculous, it satisfies all requirements

Then we come to beta possibility, it is impiety cable to work in the by [adding?],[dividing?] comprehensive routine. It might be done; but the waste of time will be enormous in any but the simplest cases.

The idea of that was double correspond ing to two different distinction[s] among the six

fundamental alpha permissible operations. Namely of these six, there are three that complicate the graph and three that simplify it. The three that complicate is are insertion, iteration and the [?] making of a double [?]. The three that simplify it are erasure, reiteration, and the cancelling of a double [cut?]. These [?] these are the six operations, [the/two?] only that are not re visible, that is which can not may not be undone as well as done. These are erasure and insertion. Now my idea in drawling up the rule, in the first place to to define to myself precisely on [?] what occasion the complicating one [?] might be indispensable in ascertaining whether a graph was possible or not, and to restrict their virtual employment to these cases, and in the second place, so to modify the non-revisable operations
