Re: a Unicorn Argent armed, crined and unguled Proper

Years ago, I started to write a program which I called Blazon, which used a description like that you quote (although I started more simply) and parsed it as if it was a scene description language, like PovRay. It's fairly easy to get "Sable, a cross Argent" for the Cornish flag of St Piran, but the precise grammar and parsing it to SVG (which was the strategy I adopted) defeated me in the end. Perhaps I should take it up again, since I'm not going anywhere!!
