The current 'glyphs' are from 2004 by S. Rosmorduc, G. Watson, J. Hirst and license GFDL. With modern hi-dpi screens and SVG support on all browsers, they desperately could use an update.
We first need good, free and open material to source new glyphs from however.

* The image list at
Made by the same Rosmorduc as our 2004 images could be an option, but the licensing situation is VERY unclear to me.
* ~~Abydos~~ (Non usable license)
We should make a map between our 2004 images and the hieroglyphs that were added to unicode in 2009, see what the overlap and discrepancies are (we have a [[ https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/User:Vorziblix/Mismatches_between_WikiHiero,_Hieroglyphica,_and_Unicode | mapping ]]). Maybe a webfont would solve our problems ?
> It’s worth noting that the Unicode situation vis-a-vis hieroglyphs will be rapidly changing over the next few years; control characters that allow proper stacking of glyphs will be encoded on 5 March of this year, and there are several proposals floating around for expansions of the Unicode glyph repertoire in the near future as well.
