Mail coifs are something of a mystery. What shape were they? How were they worn? How should I make one?

Here I ramble about the business of making a coif. My original idea was to make one as people normally do, and then have something to talk about, but once I was stuck into the task, I saw that things were not as simple as previously thought. Were coifs worn over padding? If so, how thick should it be? Did they cover the chin? If so, how did the cope with the under-hang of the jaw? I look at period art, and wonder how useful it is. I look at the little evidence there is from an actual surviving example.
