Hi Reynaldo Luévano,

> 1. Is SWML compatible with ISWA 2008?
Any of the possible variations of SWML should be compatible with the ISWA.

> 2. Is ISWA 2008 in SVG format?
No, SVG is not yet available.

> 3. Is there a guide to write grammar with ISWA 2008?
Grammar is language independent.  There are a few guidelines for 
writing.  First, only writing symbols are used in the signs.  Signs can 
be used in the left, middle, or right lanes.  Punctuation is always used 
by itself and only in the middle lane.  Sorting symbols are only used in 
the SignSpelling Sequence and do not appear in the reading text.

If you look at the ISWA code page for the SymbolGroup data, the 7th 
column called type will tell you the type of the symbols: writing, 
punctuation or sorting.  SG 1-28 are writing.  SG 29 is punctuation, SG 
30 is sorting.
