The hieroglyph for noun 3 (bound bull) is not displaying. Something wrong with the Gardiner notation? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 08:25, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

It hasn't been implemented in wikihiero (which seems to be a dead project at this stage), presumably because it is a fairly rare character. I've run into a couple of these instances. I suppose what I should do (in this and similar cases) is insert a jpeg of the hieroglyph myself. I expect I won't anytime soon, though, as I'd have to make the jpegs, and my graphical skills are less than stellar. Furius (talk) 09:04, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
Two suggestions: search for a pre-existing free copyright image of it. It very well may exist. Wikimedia Commons has thousands of graphics of rare characters in writing systems that Unicode doesn't support very well (from rongorongo to w:Phaistos disc to those ubercomplex Chinese characters used only for ceremonial purposes). That failing you, I would recommend taking a high-res photo of it if you can't draw it. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 15:32, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
