zifimage

The zifimage sandbox project has been slowly progressing.  I have completed the last of the needed modifications to support V5 of the Zoomoify viewer. I am currently bringing the code into compliance with coder and the code review modules.  These things are buggy in themselves.

Zoomify Operating Modes and XML file types

In working with the Zoomify viewer there is no unified approach to the system. You have to reverse engineer the operation by inspection of the 70 or so examples they give and their cryptic texts. This writing is an attempt at deriving some basic schemes of operation from the supplied material. I began my research with the Z commands. One of the control mechanisms is to pass the viewer a string of commands thru the HTML code. They all start with the letter 'z' hence I call them the “Z” commands. There are ovr 200 of them.
