Colours in table[edit source]

I think the table is now hard to read and the colours are garish. Is this necessary? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:56, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

I agree. The table is hard for me to read and the colours are quite obnoxious. --Holdwine Meriadoc (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 23:54, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
Ok, let me undo it, as I also added some entries. I'll do it asap. (Unless you propouse some light colors). --LorenzoCB 08:19, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
I changed the colors to be more light, and removed one of them. I think colors can be useful, specially in the future, as I want to add all the possible entries. But if you still don't like the idea, I'll remove the colors. --LorenzoCB 17:04, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
It's better but I'm still not a fan. And yellow text is unreadable. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:12, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Note[edit source]

Not sure if published (facsimile) manuscript pages should be included here, so I'll just leave this here at the moment: The 2020 deluxe edition of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl and Sir Orfeo include a facsimile of the fourth verse of Tolkien's manuscript of "Gawain's Leave-Taking" (followed by an early draft of part of the opening Canto of "The Gest of Beren and LĂșthien"), and a facsimile of the first three verses of Tolkien's manuscript of "Gawain's Leave-Taking". --Morgan 08:32, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
