      This is evidently one of the messages Dr. Altman suggested I repost to XTalk
      in her recent Xtalk reply to Bob Schacht.

      John Lupia has given his gracious permission to repost his messages as they
      relate to Dr. Altman's messages.

      Respectfully,

      [Short quotation of a message by Sam Wolff has been "excised."]

      Shalom Sam:

      Rochelle is not necessarily talking about the
      decorative motif used as borders or artistic frames,
      although these too apply in some cases, but she is
      specifically talking about the not necessarily
      incised, in this case, invisible field scribes used in
      writing. To make a modern analogy ruled or lined paper
      (incised frame) to unruled or blank paper (unincised
      frame). Children in the modern world learn to write
      on ruled paper and progress to unruled paper. Keeping
      the analogy and looking at the ossuary the scribe(s)
      could have placed incised lines or other decorative
      motives as visible frames or left the visual field
      blank, which they did in this case, but violated the
      rule of keeping the invisible ruled line going beyond
      the limits. You could say he or they were sloppy but
      the argument is embarrassing since the first half of
      the inscription is executed expertly and the second
      half inept.

      Apologies to Rochelle if my explanation is unclear and
      leads to further confusion.

      With warm regards,
      John
