This work is part of a more comprehensive activity in developing the software for outlining and stylish categorization of the shapes (contours), especially of the Church Slavic alphabet letters. Various attributes are analyzed by which the human is intuitively valuing a particular form in the art in general as well as the possibilities to do it by software. Within the analyzed attributes the harmonic relations (the proportions) that are treated here are among the basic valorization benchmarks. The harmonic proportions can be precisely defined in mathematical (geometry) form and those proportions are encountered and are finding the explanation not only in the visual perception, but also in several other areas. The harmonic system of measures is recognized by the human senses because it induces positive emotions among humans. The cognized system of measures established by the way of known, positive examples, can then be recognized and transferred to new, unknown events (shapes, forms) for which it can be said that belongs to that style. The human maybe cannot exactly express the harmonic relation, but has a congenital feeling for measure that is flexible within some boundaries (specific range) and he is giving a visual representation for the form (shape). In the human mental map concerning the spatial proportions reduced to the planar (two-dimensional) measures, the record as a mathematical notation can bear some tolerance, but in permitted instinctively established boundaries. For every new, unknown and non-measured shape, the human, "by sense" determines to what harmonic relation it can be closest. So as to transfer this "reasoning" to the computer by the way of software and to nest the "sense" to it on the proportion and the harmonic relation, the principles of "fuzzy engineering" are used which, instead of rigid, unique numbers, permit the use of a subset of values for which it can be said that they are "around (near to)" the exact value or to the ideal of the harmonic number. The postulate of the program is to appraise how much the hand of the writer have been artistically exercised and to judge to which style the writer is mostly apt - the Romanic or the Gothic one by encountering the existence or the nonexistence of harmonic proportions in the shape of the particular letters of a Church Slavic manuscript.
