- The black row below (ꝑtinet, Graphemic Layer) encodes the graphemes.
- The blue row above (pertinet, Alphabetic Layer) encodes the alphabetic letters (alphabemes) represented by those graphemes. In this case, grapheme "ꝑ" (in green) represents the three underlined alphabetic letters "p", "e" and "r".
- The black box appearing when the user hovers a word with their mouse (pertinet: [pertineo] Verbal, II conjug, Active indicative, resent, III singular, Linguistic Layer) unambiguously encodes the linguistic word beyond any spelling or graphical differences, through a combination of lemma (pertineo) and morphology (Verbal, II conjug, Active indicative, Present, III singular).
