Hi Madson,

The SignWriting 2010 font only handles the individual symbol images and 
not the 2-dimensional positioning.  For the 2-dimensional positioning, 
we are using SVG containers.  We can also use the HTML 5 Canvas, which 
has an automatic conversion to PNG.

Last year's symposium, I presented about Eduardo TrĂ¡pani's prototype 
font that was able to handle the 2-dimensional positioning using a 
special font rendering system called Graphite.  There are still several 
issues with this approach that haven't been addressed yet.
