Good point, Bill. I have trouble reading the signs as they were 
written, because the hands are too far away from each other. When I 
first saw them, I thought the contact stars meant that the hands were 
touching the chest. So in these signs, the hands need to be written 
closer together to show their inter-relationship...That may be one of 
the reasons people mis-read the signs.... See attached diagram...
