USA Today ran a story yesterday on efforts to get cuneiform tablets published on the web "in dictionary, photographic and 3-D forms":
It mentions an encoding effort (which I am sure was mentioned on this list). See URL below.
An inset provides URLs:
The University of Birmingham Cuneiform Database Project (www.eee.bham.ac.uk/cuneiform) has a number of cuneiform images and explanations.
The Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (early-cuneiform .humnet.ucla.edu) details efforts to bring photos of the earliest cuneiform tablets, 120,000 in all, to the Web.
The Initiative for Cuneiform Encoding (www.jhu.edu/ice) describes efforts to codify how cuneiform symbols are translated into modern fonts.
Other efforts are under construction; some are useful only to working scholars. The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology offers a helpful cuneiform
explanation site for teachers at www.upenn.edu/museum/
