We describe a new encoding scheme for hieroglyphic that is very different from that offered by the Manuel de Codage, in its functionality and its syntax. We discuss the problems of the Manuel de Codage, and the solutions to these problems offered by the new encoding scheme. We also discuss the wider RES project, of which development of the new encoding scheme is the main objective.
