|This keymap (based on vimscript #4147 by J˙da RonÚn) allows the input of basic Old English/Anglo Saxon text using a standard keyboard. It has been simplified from the original to emphasize natural, fast entry. It is suitable for most work done by students of the language but is also capable of more complex manuscripts.
For example, to input "Š" type "ae". For "ā", type "-a".
The general scheme is the following.
- macron (e.g. "-a" becomes "ā")
. dot (e.g. ".c" becomes "ċ")
# Insular script (e.g. "#g" becomes "ᵹ")
* miscellaneous special symbols (e.g. "*w" becomes "ƿ")
/ prevent a mapping (e.g. "/ae" becomes "ae" instead of "Š")
For details, see the source file oengsimple.vim or the wiki page.
