The list of registered heraldic titles is at: 

This list is not up to date, but it's fairly close.  The changes I know of are:

- Orle is now actively used (so the "No" in the curr column would get removed)

- Rowel is now in use, but for "Commentary, External" or maybe 
simply "Commentary" - Etienne?

- And there were a couple of scribal titles registered in the last year or so, 
right?  (I found Golden Scroll Pursuivant & Scroll Pursuivant, reg. 06/2003)

- Also, Kathri's personal heraldic title (Cross Flury Herald, reg. 11/02, 
transferred 12/03). 

The titles in the list on our webpage generally include an indication of what 
each heraldic title is used for.  Maybe we could put a link to it on the FAQ 
page to make it easier to find.  Is that a useful idea?
