Index Half-Hinge and Full-Hinge...Excellent diagrams, Stefan - Really 
super!  And Hector, the dot represents the finger "projecting" forward. 
The dot moves up and down depending on the level of the finger that is 
projecting forward....In the SSS 2002 symbol set, I chose two of those 
to be standard symbols, one with the finger half-way down, and one 
completely down...  Val ;-)
