minstrel: My fight with the Cantigas has begun

Help! I've read the article, but the examples are hard to decipher,
because they're small and their quality is bad and the language is not
easy for me. I think that the clef used in the cantigas is a bass clef,
and that a black square is 1/4 of a note, and a black diamond is 1/8 of
a note giving a time signature of 8/4 in the cantiga 100 (Santa Maria
strela do dia) on which I'm working, 'cos I know this one. But I've
encountered some strange symbols, like a black square with a line going
out of it (like a normal 1/4 note) or with two lines from both sides,
and I don't have a clue what do they mean. I think that there are many
other symbols, which I don't know, so if anybody deciphered the
cantigas, I'd be grateful for some (or even much) help with determining
the note values.
