At any rate, Here are more details...

.... where you see a little more of what he means. His writing system is 
the first "basado en criterios fonológicos". If you want to see a

"Para un conocimiento de los distintos sistemas de escritura de la LSs 
que han circulado, ver el capítulo de Irma M. Muñoz «Sistemas de 
escritura de lenguas de signos. SignWriting y HamNoSys» en el libro de

lingüística de la LSE , Valencia, Fesord, 2001, pp. 157-167. "
