To improve SW texts on the web: there is a paper about SW (Brazilian Portuguese
only)that I wrote 2 years ago entitled "Signwriting system as a possibility in
Deaf People literacy". I discuss why writing is an important empowerment tool
to the deaf community and how prejudices (against a writing form) are a common
false idea among groups who have not
a writing system of their own (some indians groups, deaf,...). I compare some
sign writing systems (thanks to Joe Martin's texts on the SW web) and suggest
that SW is the writing code more adequate to register a
signed language in an everyday bases.

Hope it helps Portuguese and, maybe, Spanish readers.
