Hi Alex Malmann Becker,
The standard format for saving SignWriting text is with FSW which stands
for "Formal SignWriting".
You can read more about Formal SignWriting in the Internet Draft
new TrueType fonts for SignWriting.
There is also a programming library available in PHP, but this is an
older implementation. The project is called the SignWriting Icon
Server. It contains a lot of compatibility code and is based on the
filesystem/database fonts, rather than the TrueType fonts.
BSW, CSW, and KSW are all earlier data formats. They are historically
interesting, but should not be used for new project.
BSW stands for "Binary SignWriting". This was the first character
format that I attempted for SignWriting. There have been several
iterations of this format. The latest iteration uses 12-bit characters.
CSW stands for "Character SignWriting". This is a Unicode format of the
BSW data on Plane 15. This format is interesting because Eduardo
Trápani created an experimental TrueType font that uses CSW to compose
the 2-dimensional signs entirely within the Graphite font rendering system.
KSW stands for "Kartesian SignWriting". KSW is an irregular format that
uses an unrestricted coordinate set. The irregular nature of KSW caused
problem with searching based on regular expressions. The problems of
searching KSW resulted in the creation of Formal SignWriting.
