Hello Mark and SW List members:
Glad to hear that the CD would be of interest. I just finished printing
25 copies of our ASL Dictionary that comes in the three-ring notebook.
It is costly to print and very heavy to mail. Plus it took me a long
time to prepare 25 thick notebooks. The order was from Gallaudet
Bookstore. I don't know if they still want them, because I am late with
sending them their order, so I will call today to find out if they
still want them...This problem has gone on for our orders
increased, I couldn't keep up with the printing demands.

So our publications are changing. I will not print any more notebooks
of any kind, and all those publications are now on CD.

I was worried that people would not want to use the CDs, because they
prefer printed books...But there really isn't any choice any longer.

CDs can hold a lot of data, and I don't believe it would be a problem
to include textbooks from different countries on the same CD - So that
will be a future project, Mark -

Val ;-)
