Hi Jim,

Brunskill's glossary might not travel that far, even in the UK. It might be better to grow our own from the seeds sown by Joel McCarty and Kenneth Rower. UK academics can get quite possessive of "their" terms and definitions for same and it might just be that their terms do not necessarily truly reflect the common everyday usage of vernacular carpentery language. The CBA illustrated Glossary (see FAQ Wiki) is probably a better reflection of traditional UK vernacular terms.

What is the authoritative US glossary or are we engaged in the process of manufacture of same ?

Regards

Ken Hume

Hi Jim,

I have just created a trial "Wealden" illustrated glossary and am now just about ready to post same. Joel and Ken Rower are currently working on the details on how illustrations and digi pics can be posted.

Clark,

The link to the Wiki formatting page is very useful and it reminds me of the primitive days of using "Word Perfect" [for DOS].

Regards

Ken Hume

Word Perfect?

Nearly as ancient as a Wealden I am thinking.

Hi Joel, Jim, Don et all,

I have now managed to post my Wealden House - illustrated glossary. Go to the "W" section in the TFWiki index then click on the small [1} at the end of the WEALDEN entry which then causes the illustration to pop up.

I posted this at 640 x 480 (165kb) to keep the pixels under control but would welcome comments re the best size format to ensure reasonable performance on dial up connections.

Regards

Ken Hume

Comments please.

Hi All,

I have upped the resolution to 800 x 600 and at (256kb) this should still be reasonably quick to download. Feedback ?

Regards

Ken Hume

Joel:

The header at the top of the FAQ page says "Forum", but it should say "FAQ" or "Frequently Asked Questions"

Ah Yes, WP: "Reveal Codes" :-)

Ken, I think the link should be more obvious. What about turning the actual heading term (WEALDON in this case) into a link? Either to the drawing, or to a more detailed article on the topic that includes the drawing. CB.

Good stuff. Eminently viewable.

I want the image files to reside on tfwiki.org, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this, yet.
