The On-line Glossary

Printing the Glossary

In principle (this means that things should work correctly but may not) you should be able to use the on-line search facilities of the Glossary without first having to install the Ahmao font. If the characters 22 do not resemble then the principle has not worked. In this case you must download and install the Ahmao font.

The On-line Glossary will work only with Internet Explorer.

You can also access Traditional Songs and Stories of the Hua Miao of South West China
