Hi Charles -
We all agree with each other actually...it is only terminology that
is coming in the way.
In the computer world, having nothing to do with the SignWriting
world, the term "background" in computers can mean the color of the
surrounding box behind the sign (the graphic image) itself...
So when I said background, I meant only the surrounding box around
Some layout artists need transparent boxes around the sign for their
layouts, and others want white "backgrounds"...not talking about the
signs themselves, but the paper behind the signs
Of course later on, when the new ISWA 2008 is installed, you will
always be getting the good white palms that are not transparent...but
that is a feature of the symbols themselves, and is not the same as
the paper-background people can choose, which can be pink, or yellow
or white or transparent...
It is just a matter of terminology...
We are on the same page, Charles...
And I appreciate all you are doing for SignWriting, and I appreciate
Steve's hard work to give us so many paper backgrounds too!
