Ordering Signs in Dictionaries

Hi Charles,
     I think that using the SignSpelling Sequence with the sylables as 
Val suggested and sort the SignSpelling Sequences by sorting weight to 
match your manual sorting in your document.

I will give it a try and let you know where I need you to fill in some 
blanks here and there.

Valerie has an imposed order by an encoded sign-symbol-sequence taking 
precedence over her "default" one.

I had to sort mine manually, there may be ways for you to achieve yours 
by other methods in your new program, but if you impose it by the 
software at the beginning, then you will have to impose a "Sign Spelling 
Sequence" as the default at some point, as unless you know a sign, all 
you see in the dictionary is the completed one, not its inherent order 
when it is made of multiple  syllables.
