Val and Stephen

thank you for your quick answer!
I don't know how to use Apache... so I'll keep entering my signs 
online... does'nt matter!

I just have another question about SignPuddle... anyone can add signs 
to the swiss french dictionnary but... I'm supposed to be able to 
correct things if I see some wrong spellings...
could you just tell me how to do so ( I just read your previous message 
to editors (2nd of october)...... and I know where my problem is: I 
forgot what I'm supposed to enter under user... and my password)... 
stupid I didn't wrote it down... and <as I haven't used it yet...! I 
can't remember

Can you help me Stephen or Valerie!

Thanks in advance
