      Thank you for pointing out this marvellous resource. I had been searching
      the net for photographs of Amarna texts, but without large-scale success.

      Yes, this was always a non-starter, especially since it required a desire
      for a justified right margin. Such justification may be characteristic
      of copies of literary texts for archives or libraries or of monumental
      inscriptions, but not of everyday texts such as letters, contracts, or
      administrative texts. There are exceptions, of course, to both
      categorizations, but the Amarna texts that I have seen did not seem to
      be exceptional in this regard.
