Thanks for your comment, Steve. Although it is correct that at this
time in history, we do not have way to type SignWriting inside an email
message, there will be a day when that happens. There are several
programmers working on that issue right now, including Dr. Antonio
Carlos da Rocha Costa in Brazil, with his SWML development:
SWML, SignWriting Markup Language
So just as typing Chinese in email does not happen everyday in the
United States, it may actually be happening elsewhere and we don't
realize it. Technology races onward! Val ;-)
