SignWriting List
January 30, 2003

Thanks, Bill! I know...I found this out too, after I posted it. It was
not SignBank that created the Tiff was my email software.
So the email idea is not yet solved. Meanwhile, the new feature in
SignBank is wonderful (forgetting email software ). We can now copy any
graphic in the SignBank Portal to the clipboard, and then paste it into
any text or graphics editor - very nice - just doesn't solve email,
though...There will be a day when we type SignWriting directly in email
- it just isn't today...  Val ;-)
