LaTeX macros

If you want the small signs to be on the baseline, type \SurLigne out of a hieroglyph environment; the default is to center signs. To switch back to centered signs, type \Centrer. In a cartouche, the text is always centered. You can handle the line-cutting algorithm by changing the two TeX macros \Hrp and \Hitmts; the first rules what is inserted between signs, the second between words. The default values tend to protect you from cutting a word, at the cost of some white space.
