Dear SignWriting List Members:
This has been an important day for me...I finally decided, after five
years, to release SignWriter 5.0 for the Macintosh. It is free for
download on this web page:

I completed the new SignWriter MAC Reference Manual today, in PDF
format and also in SignBank Lessons format.  It is a 40 page document
teaching people how to use SignWriter MAC...

For those who do not use Macintosh, you still might find reading the
PDF document informative, because it will give you an understanding of
what SignWriter 5.0 will be someday, for Windows. Creating a SignWriter
WIN from the SignWriter MAC can be done, it just takes funding to pay
an experienced Java programmer.

Just for the record, SignWriter MAC is NOT a finished computer program.
It does not work as I had envisioned, but now, with Macintosh OS X,
which is a UNIX based operating system, and with the new versions of
JAVA that have recently been released, suddenly some of the bugs have
gone away without us trying to fix them! That, plus the fact that we
all feel so frustrated needing "better looking graphics" (the old DOS
documents do not have good graphics), I finally decided to go ahead and
release a partially finished computer program, with the hopes that more
advanced SignWriter DOS users will find the better graphics worth any
of the problems they might encounter.

So I hope you will all download the PDF document - I would love your
