Fabulous, that will make it much easier.  I'm looking forward to when PUDL uses the IMWA for his symbol set.

Ha! Then that is 01-07-003. That is the same handshape that Hector
Devias requested before. So Colombian and Brazilian Sign Languages do
have a similar sign...

I thought you meant a closed fist where the thumb, deep underneath,
pushes the ring finger up just a little...I plan to add that one
later...I call that the Ring-Thumb-Hook...

But meanwhile, there is no pushing in 01-07-003....but the thumb is
under the Ring Finger as you have diagramed in the attached...good
drawing Charles!
