Dear SignWriting List:
I am writing the manual on the SSS-2002 right now. Some of you asked
what the term "FILL" means. Take a look below. You will see that the
term FILL is a software term related to SignWriting. Maybe we
shouldn't translate it, but keep it in English? I will leave that to
all of you, but since it is only used in relationship to computer
numbers I don't think it matters too much...Thanks so much for your
input...and thank you for all your language translations!

Val ;-)
