Thank you! ;-)

These are sorted with Finger Location Symbols, which are some of the  
symbols that still have to be added to the IMWA. They will be placed  
at the end of the Finger Movement section of symbols (when they are  

There are two factors that make these signs different. Finger  
Location-Height, and Finger Location-front or back or side.

The tip of the finger comes first in height. So the second sign would  
come before the first one in a dictionary sorted by SSS...
