The short sign list according to Gardiner


    A list of the most commonly used hieroglyphs was composed by Alan Gardiner. He divided them into 26 categories which are listed on the left.
    I have adapted the list found at Astrodoc's website [1], changed slightly the special hieroglyph fonts, packed them into a zip file of about 370kb, which can be downloaded here. The extracted fonts have to be installed in the "windows\fonts" directory. Transliteration are in Manuel de Codage
    Alternatively you can peruse the lists as gif images
