|This script is actually pretty easy in terms of letter forms. If you don't read Dutch, the words may look pretty strange, and if Dutch is your native language, you may still find some rather odd words. You could test your puzzle solving skills by trying a complete transcript. Go to the text pages. Use a pen and paper. Then check it against ours.|
|Click on each of the above to walk your way through the text. The transcript will appear in a separate window so that you can use it for reference at any time. These exercises are designed to guide you through the text, not test you, so you can cheat as much as you like.|
