Lovesguide has now introduced a new way of presenting tuning figures which
makes use of colour coding to show where a partial is either sharp (shades
of blue) or flat (red) of true harmonic tuning (which is green).  It also
compares nominals in a ring against established scales of e.g. Equal

A page briefly summarising this can be found at

An example of where this is demonstrated is at  Here I have managed to get some before
and after figures for the tuning of these bells, and the colours make stark

Of course, it helps if you are not colour blind to fully appreciate these

Comments about this (and anything else in my series) gratefully accepted.
