New Inscription Resource

Semitic Inscriptions Sémitiques:

This website is a database of ancient texts written in Semitic languages and inscribed on various media: tablets, potteries, manuscripts, etc. It grants direct access to all kinds of information about these inscriptions: their origin, their age, their script… And of course, most importantly, the text itself, analyzed, translated, and annotated.

Looks promising. At this point they only have a half dozen inscriptions, but could be useful if the number of texts grows sufficiently and the search engine is robust enough to handle complicated parameters. They say to use Firefox on the cite, but I found Chrome works as well.
