I just noticed an interesting paragraph that Steve wrote in the
acknowledgements section of the IMWA Conversion software...you can
read this on the web under acknowledgements on this web page:
IMWA to ISWA Conversion Software
What this shows is that Steve and I just worked really hard, but
didn't know 100 per cent how it would convert until we tried it, and
it converted really well...we are fortunate! Thank you Steve for this
writing...it is fun to read and to realize...smile...
When Valerie Sutton and I started working on the ISWA, I told her that
she could reorganize the symbol set to her hearts content. Symbols
could be moved and rearranged however she wanted. I am thankful that
she believed me even though I had no idea how I was going to do it.
She kept extensive notes for the changes she made. These notes were
used to create the conversion data files. With a little hands on
attention, the conversion data files worked amazingly well. The end
result is a blessing." Steve Slevinski, Oct 21, 2008
