38 <a href="http://3rin.gs/">This</a> is a map of
39 J.R.R.&nbsp;Tolkien&#8217;s Middle&nbsp;Earth. The labels are,
40 where possible, in the Elvish language of Sindarin and the Tengwar
41 alphabet, particularly in the
42 &#147;<a href="http://at.mansbjorkman.net/teng_general.htm">General Use</a>&#148;
43 mode, as in the third version of
44 <em>The King&#8217;s Letter</em>.

50 clicking and dragging.
51 <strong>Zoom &mdash;</strong> You can zoom in and out using your
52 mouse&#8217;s scroll wheel or by holding down your <em>shift</em>
53 key while clicking and dragging.
54 <strong>Center &mdash;</strong> You can center the map on a
55 position by double clicking.
56 <strong>Link &mdash;</strong> As you pan and zoom the map, the URL

62 The map was illustrated with a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dip_pen">
63 nib calligraphy pen</a>,
64 digitally edited with the <a href="http://www.gimp.org/">
65 GNU Image Manipulation Program</a>,
66 digitally assembled with <a
67 href="http://www.inkscape.org/">Inkscape</a>,
68 and programmed by <a

71 translation and transliteration by <a

77 Until a permanent home has been constructed,
78 the rough graphics and translation notes
79 are available upon <a href="mailto:kris.kowal@cixar.com">request</a>.
