a class of simplest Bliss characters (87)

I am playing with deciphering of the "drawing string" column (that is the "shape definitions" column == the 5th column of the .WBS file).

there are 167 characters that have only one part in the "drawing string". When I exclude latin letters and digits and "?!" there are 87 characters .

I made a python script to generate HTML with images. I will post the script if anybody +1's this post.

the output HTML document is here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2VSGZcS6HOTZldobDFsak4tNTA/view?usp=sharing
(a note: I additionally opened the HTML document in LibreOffice Writer and then saved-a-copy (as HTML) ... that makes the images become embedded in the HTML document)
