Jonathan and Charles -
Perhaps you are working privately together and if so that is wonderful ;-)
I do not want to impose my ideas about sorting dictionaries, since this was an email for Charles and not for me - smile -
and I agree with Jonathan, Charles, that your presentation 10 at the SignWriting Symposium was a great addition to the presentations…
So is it ok with you that I tell you how we are sorting signs here? There are actually two ways we are doing it now…

I am getting the impression that your sorting could sort dictionaries without the sign sequence, is this assumption correct? Or would it sort signs according to the symbols in sign sequence? It doesn't seem to take into account the order of the symbols in the sign sequence, is this correct?
