SignWriting List
December 24, 2003

Dear SW List, and Steve and Bart in Belgium!
What a wonderful Christmas gift...The entire English-American Sign
Language Dictionary, that is found in SignWriter DOS...(an estimated
3,111 signs or so), is now available on a specially-programmed web site
from YOU!!

I am assuming that someday you will be placing Flemish (Belgian) signs
there too? or any other signed language that needs a database on the
web? That is a great gift, Steve and Bart...

I know what a huge job this is, and once again, thanks for the great
Christmas gift...

For those who are curious...please go to:

'search' ("zoeken") for different parts of a word, ... The Dutch words
'volgende' ("next") and 'vorige' ("previous") might also
interest you. (Currently the system might respond slowly due to heavy

Merry Christmas to all of you
