      I have intentionally avoided the terms "above" and "below", for
      exactly the reasons you give, and instead adopted a terminology as
      described on the Overview page: "On this site I instead refer to the
      _front_, _back_, _top_ and _bottom_ of sarati, the front being the
      side facing the following sarat in the reading direction, and the top
      being the end always attached to the bar." Perhaps this should be
      pointed out in each valuation description as well.

      I see what you mean. I will consider it.

      I'm aware that the size of the table is an issue. Dividing it into
      several smaller tables is certainly an idea. I think I'll do that.

      Looking forward to it! ;-)
