ELAN & SignWriting

If you want to integrate SignWriting into ELAN, you can use UTF-8.  All 
SignPuddle data easily converts between Binary SignWriting and UTF-8. 

Open any puddle and view a sign or sign text.  Under the entry, find the 
meta data.  Hover over the UTF-8 link to view the data.  Copy and paste 
just like text.  With the SignWriting MediaWiki Plugin, you can paste 
the UTF-8 and use it just like any other Unicode string.  

View the UTF-8 test page in MediaWiki:
SignWriting: http://www.signpuddle.net/mediawiki/index.php/Unicode_test
Copy any data from SignPuddle and paste it into the Unicode test page to 
see the possibilities.

ELAN will need a special plugin to view the SignWriting.  The font 
engine Graphite may be available the end of this year or next.

For online servers, the SignWriting Image Server is available.

I should have the UTF-8 documents and implementation available in 2 weeks.
